Ever since my high school years, MFC has continuously provided a lot of help. My mentor has stood by my side through my hardest moments and joyful moments, too.
When I was in high school, I faced many academic difficulties as an immigrant student so my GPA wasn’t really competitive. I was really afraid about whether any college would accept me. However, through MFC’s mentorship program I regained the courage to start thinking about college.
During my junior and senior years of high school, my mentor coached me through the entire college app process. She would drive all the way from Orange County to Los Angeles just to provide SAT workshops for my friend and me. I remember so many instances during the fall semester of my senior year that she would come over to my house to help me with my college apps and teach me how to apply for many different kinds of financial aid and extracurricular enrichment opportunities.
