Ashley

I am a native of Brooklyn, New York currently majoring in Liberal Arts at Kingsborough Community College. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to help people. Though I initially thought becoming a Nurse was the only way, I have learned that there are various ways to positively impact my community. After transferring to a four-year institution, I plan to combine my love for Health and Political Science to explore career opportunities that will bring about this positive change.

In a previous retail job experience, I was able to work my way up to a leadership position on the sales team. This gave me the opportunity to practice being a positive influence by listening, being considerate to others, and guiding them to succeed. These skills are beneficial when working in the health community due to medical and social responsibilities that require compassion.

I joined this program because my parents were not afforded this amazing opportunity. With America Needs You by my side, I hope to learn more about my intended major and strengthen the foundation of my values. It is very warming to be surrounded by people from different walks of life who come together to achieve their goals. I love the feeling of community and appreciate the strides that Mentor Coaches and America Needs You staff take to make sure we are the best we can be.
