My mentor was Karen Bonsignore who works as a reporter for CNN. Meeting with Karen motivated me to be more open-minded about my future because I CAN be someone successful. Also, my mentor told me to never give up and to never say “no” to any opportunity that comes up in my life. My mentor told me a lot of things she had to do in her job which inspired me. She also motivated me to always look ahead and to never give up on myself. She also told me that I don’t have to stay with the same career I already had in mind because there are many more out there. She reminded me to always take advantage of all of the opportunities that come up in life.
Three things that I put on my inspiration board are:
– The word “Paris” because I want to go there someday. It just looks so nice and beautiful and I want to see the Eiffel Tower.
-The word “Law” because I might want to be a lawyer someday.
-A photo of the sky because it looks peaceful.
TOP 5 REASONS WHY I WANT TO BE LIKE MY MENTOR:
-I Like to find out new things.
-I like to find out about new movies.
-I like to meet new standards.
-I like trying new things that come up.
-I like to make $$$ 🙂
