Volunteer Experience

Student Mentor

Ravenell Elementary School

Sep 2019 - Mar 2020
I became a mentor to a 5th-grade student at a local elementary school for Clemson Athletics Paw Pal Program. The kids would be matched with a student-athlete who had similar backgrounds in order to offer relatable advice and empathy. I would visit once a week during her recess hour and I could be an outlet for her to talk about school, family, friends. Sadly, this was cut short due to the pandemic but it was a great experience to be a part of.
