ALUMNI:  Shalonda Carmichael

I am so eager to be typing this essay right now. I feel that I have grown so much as a young woman. I started North Carolina Central University in 2013, and feel there is so much to accomplish in so little time. I've had the opportunity to test my limits. I have learned from professors to take something positive from trying new things. Even while working 35 hours some weeks, I can proudly say I received five A's and one B. My mentor and the Mentors, Inc. scholarship have helped, and remind me that I have people cheering for me. Donate to Mentors, Inc. to help other high school students have the experience of a mentor in their lives.
