A Positive Outlet

Lauren Klassen

Being matched with a mentor has given me a Positive Outlet in  the form of a friend, role model and Big Sister. My Big Sister has encouraged me to pursue my passions and to try new opportunities even when I have self-doubt. She has set an example for me to achieve my ambitions, even when it takes grit.

My mentor has changed my life in so many ways, from strenghtening my sense of
community to empowering me to apply for, and ultimately, be awarded the
prestigious CIBC YouthVision Scholarship.

I’ve been fortunate to have had an amazing support system consisting of Mentors, Educators, and my Family, who have alowed me to be successful. Becuase of them I try to empower other women to achieve their success through supporting  community initiatives.

It is important to always show Kindness and Encouragement to other women so we build each other up. I try to do so especially with my mentee by listening to what she says and supporting her interests. I know one day she will reach her full potential and follow her dreams.
