Hi there and thank you for visiting my page! I joined Minds Matter of Los Angeles in September 2018 not really knowing what to expect, and I can safely say now that it is the best decision I have made since moving to LA.
So what is Minds Matter and why am I asking for your donation? Minds Matter of Los Angeles is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success.
My mentee, Marvin, is currently a junior with a passion for forensic science and volleyball. Marvin's hard work and dedication enabled him to be accepted to and attend a program at Tufts University last summer. Working with Marvin every Saturday is inspiring and rewarding.
Your gift will help MMLA and our mission to double the number of students we serve within 5 years. You can help make this happen.
