I had the honor of participating in Junior Achievement of North Central Michigan's Mentor Circle for the past three years, since it's conception. This year, in addition to being a Mentor, I was offered the opportunity by JA's incredible COO, Jen Wakefield Carpenter, 💃 to be a speaker. I presented to 200+ high school students about the importance of networking NOW, and the correct way to shake hands. 🤝
The most moving part of this day, was reading the post-it notes the students and mentors left behind. I truly touched lives by simply sharing my passion for networking. The room was so quiet - no questions - so I had no idea whether they enjoyed the presentation or not - until I read the comments they took the time to leave behind. 💙
If you are involved with a high school - or have high school students at home, OR are interested in being a mentor (it's a one-day commitment) please reach out to me or Jen regarding next year's mentor circle - it's an amazing opportunity for students and mentors alike.
