My plans for after high school are to go to MCC for one year or two and then transfer to RIT to complete my bachelors in Interior Design.
The IBERO/PRYD mentoring program has helped me in many different ways. Emotionally they’ve help me to become a stronger person. Socially I have become more comfortable in public speaking. Their advice has helped me to graduate and achieve many things academically. Also the after-school activities helped me to be involved in new things and meet new people. I enjoyed participating in the after school STEM IBERO/PRYD program and the IBERO/PRYD Damita’s after-school support group. It was such a great support
group; not only for me, but for the students of Monroe.
My achievements are dedicated to them; especially to my mentor Ms. Nora Garcia, my best friend, my second mother. She helped me so much! She’s the one that I always could trust with everything and who was always there for me when I needed. She also gave me her best advice and helped me through.
The IBERO/ PRYD mentors are just awesome! I will forever appreciate the help and support they gave me
throughout the years in the mentoring program at James Monroe High school.
