Why did you become a peer mentor? I became a mentor because I didn’t have one, and wish I did when I was first injured. I truly see the value and benefits of mentorship for survivors. As a mentor, I want to share with others that the stars are the limit to life’s passions and discoveries. I've learned a lot about parenting with an injury, adaptive sports, going back to school, wellness and driving, as I kept my passion for the arts and fashion alive. One must know that support is the main ingredient to have during this new journey of life.
