Today, I decided to become a Micro Mentor. I am already signed up for the Boston University alumni program. It puts my name on a website and allows BU grads to contact me to ask questions about the entertainment industry or starting out in New York. I decided to sign up for that program because I wouldn't be where I am today without the generosity of a few women who helped me while I was starting out. They took the time to meet with me, allowed me to ask questions and helped guide me in the right direction. I was raised with the knowledge that it's important to remember where you came from and to give back when you can. I thought that the Micro Mentor program through Mercy Corps would be a great fit.
It's pretty easy to sign up - just go to MicroMentor.org. Decide if you'd like to have a mentor or be a mentor. Fill out the easy steps and wait to hear back.
I'll keep you posted to let you know how it goes.
Will you consider giving back as well?
