My relationship with my mentees is filled with love and laughter. It's just a very open relationship. When mentoring, I think back to when I was that age and what I needed, the space and people that I needed, and I try to embody those character traits.

 Hormar is a mentorship program for Somali youth in Boston but I think of it as a very affirming space that brings together Somalis nationally to be able to use their skills and give back to their community.

My favorite thing about being a mentor is seeing my mentee grow and achieve his goals across different areas. He has opened up a lot. In the beginning, I felt like it was more on me as the mentor to talk but now our conversations flow naturally. Last semester we spent a good amount of time getting to know each other and finding out what works for us. This semester we know what techniques to use and how to communicate better. He recently completed a reading goal which was a big accomplishment.

It is hard to find time to volunteer as a young professional. However, tutoring at Hormar has been a rewarding experience. Helping students with math reminds me of my excitement to pursue CS in college. There is a lack of representation in STEM fields. I hope that my presence at Hormar encourages students to explore STEM careers.
