Maya Jones, explorer lab mentor
I serve as a mentor for the [Learning Undefeated] Explorer Lab because I enjoy being with kids. I think it’s important to have young adults like myself encourage kids to go to college and pursue promising careers. My most memorable moment during a school visit was introducing myself to the middle school class. I informed the class of my major and there were many questions. Being able to answer all of their questions about chemistry, college, etc made me feel inspiring.
From working as a mentor, I learned that small things can have a major impact on people. Volunteering weekly with the kids had a significant impact on my life. I truly enjoyed being someone younger students can look up to.
