My experience with Seed has been an amazing one. The mentor sessions have ensured so much growth within me and has helped me deal with the problems that I am facing. The best part of all, is that I made the greatest buddy one could ever ask for. She is always there for me and I know that when I have a problem I can go to her for advice or just to have someone listen and not judge.
The mentor training and the mentor sessions that we have been having with Nikki and the students has shown me that what we do is more valuable than what I ever imagined. This has shown me that I can make a difference and be there for another person other than my buddy, or the Seed ladies. I am grateful for this opportunity and I look forward to Fridays because I know that I will get to see the youth and help make a difference.
As this new project unfolds, I am slowly acknowledging the importance of it for myself but most importantly, the students and Newgate.
