July 1, 2018

Julie and Lucy are a mentor2.0 match made in heaven! Lucy is an active, fun, and laser-focused student who will be the first in her family to graduate high school and her dreams don’t stop there! After high school, she plans to utilize her tenacity and intelligence to go to medical school and become a pediatrician.

Despite having only been matched for a few months, Julie and Lucy have already developed a very special connection. They share a compassionate outlook as well as a determination to always succeed. Julie isn’t afraid to challenge Lucy and Lucy isn’t afraid to seek advice from Julie and ask her important questions.

When asked about their relationship, Lucy said her favorite thing about Julie is how understanding and open-minded she is and Julie said: “I can’t wait to watch her grow and continue to succeed because I know she will be successful at whatever she chooses to do”.
