Having a mentor my eight grade year has been a wonderful experience. Before now I never really knew what a mentor was all about but Mr. Foster has definitely made it very clear for me. Mr. Foster is a positive roll model I can look up to and aspire to be like when I grow up. I look forward to meeting with him on Tuesdays because he always gives me something to think about in a way that I had not thought about it before. He has taught me how to be a leader, make wise choices and also encouraged me to take care of my health.

Until now I never really thought seriously about what I want to be when I grow up and now I realize how important it is. I think being a mentor is a very nice thing to do to show kids you care about them and what happens to them in the future and I hope when I’m an adult I will be able to do the same thing.
