Why did you decide to become a mentor for HFS?
I wanted to become a mentor in order to get more involved in an organization where I could see the direct impact of my time.


What is your favorite part of being a mentor?
I really like connecting with my mentee, connecting, and helping her navigate through freshman year. To stay connected, we schedule video chats once a month. We also have quite a bit in common, so we’ll text each other to share our latest baking adventures, or what book we’re currently reading. We haven’t had a chance to meet in-person yet due to COVID-19, so we’ve been doing our best with virtual meetings. But it’s been really fun building a one-on-one relationship.
