The kids help me see everyday and remind me why I want to become a doctor because giving back is such an important thing to me. In addition, when I see these young scholars going out and reaching their goals, it emphasizes why I am doing the same. I believe that I have been an excellent resource for the kids. Not only have I tutored them and been a great mentor, I have been a good listener as well. Working for STEP has allowed me to build on my leadership and teamwork skills and I thank the supervisors for their constant support and making STEP a second family. I am blessed to say that I am a junior and I will be coming back to tutor because I love where I work. STEP overall has given me so much that it is difficult to express how truly grateful I am.
Thanks to Felita Orr, Amir Gilmore, Etwin Bowman and Celia Rouse for allowing this program to run as smoothly as it does.
