  2. What has been the most rewarding experience of your training and/or fundraising so far? Seeing how supportive our community is for mentoring.
  3. Tell us about an important mentor you had/have in your life. My marketing manager, KC Cressinger. She pushes me every day and is always there to listen.
  4. Why do you think mentoring is important? It gives children an advantage, when their circumstances might not normally offer that to them.
  5. How does mentoring strengthen communities? It directly affects both the mentor and mentee in a positive light, therefore yielding positive benefits to the overall community and those involved.
