My tribe of mentors helped me to get to where I am today. They are high-level city officials, executive leaders in nonprofit, educators, and C-suite executives here in Silicon Valley. It is their incredible leadership and guidance that has helped me to achieve my professional success and goals. However, my most impactful mentor was my 5th-grade elementary teacher, Mrs. Hopper, who taught me about civic duty and community service. To this day, the work I do outside of my professional life is centered on service and giving back to the community. Much of my spare time is dedicated to service. 
Today, 1 in 3 young people will grow up without a mentor of any kind. Growing up as a first-generation American without a mentor was challenging, so I understand the importance of having someone to help guide me and provide advice for navigating the social, academic, and professional landscape. I relied heavily on school counselors to help me navigate through the application process for my undergrad education, and my American friends and their parents to adjust to social and cultural norms. 
A study also showed that mentoring promotes positive social attitudes and relationships. Mentored youth tend to trust their parents more and communicate with them better. (The Role of Risk, 2013). The positive impact of having mentors has helped me tremendously to overcome personal and professional obstacles and deal with it in a better way.

I’ve returned to my alma mater, CSU Stanislaus, to volunteer in the Warrior Mentoring program as a mentor to help other first-generation students much like myself. This program connects mentors with mentees to provide career conversations, resume writing critiques, mock interviews, panel discussions, and ways to optimize Linkedin profiles. This program also provides webinars to mentor and mentee in various areas to help them succeed in personal and professional growth.

http://itu.edu/academic/advising #humansofituWhen I think of a mentor, I think of my educational advisor Shannon Phillips at the University at Buffalo where I was doing my masters. She inspired me to aspire for bigger things in my career. 
She was one of the faculty members who always had time for her students to discuss career goals and had incredible insight into career after education. 
She always advised us to be confident even if you know you may be making a mistake. Failure is always a way to learn and reassess your goals. Thanks to Shannon Phillips, I am much more confident in what I do in my life every day.
