Mentor of The Month: Encouraging Each Other

"I have been volunteering with Wright to Read since 2016. My favorite part about volunteering is being able to reach beyond social constructs to make a connection with someone who is completely different from me. Volunteering helps me to remember that although we all may have different backgrounds, we can still relate to each other, learn from each other and help each other succeed. It breaks down the negative societal stereotypes that are often placed on us (especially when we are at our lowest), and allows the true strength of humanity to shine by using our compassion and charity to uplift each other."
