It is always great to have a friend. It is even better to have an older friend that can show you things that can help you. This friend can also introduce you to new things. This friend is a mentor. I met my first mentor when I was eight years old. Since we have met, I better understand many things about life. She has taught me how to love myself, love others, and how it feels to be loved by a family. My mentor allowed me to learn a different way of living, and showed me how to present myself as a young lady. Having a good mentor, especially one of the same gender, can be highly beneficial to you. They can write you letters of recommendations, help you find employment and schooling, or get you involved in extracurricular activities. Mentors are around to assist you in achieving goals that you set for yourself. I strongly encourage you to find someone that you think would be a good mentor and will have a great influential value on your life. Having a mentor is great and will make your hardships so much more easier. What a great support system to have!
