Jami and I didn’t know each other before I took my trip. She shared her personal experience and allowed herself to be vulnerable. Her taking that risk directly affected me and I hope I can do the same for someone else one day. This goes to show that your actions do move people. Don’t be afraid to share your experience with the world, it just might reach the person who needs it most.
Mentors come at different stages and in different degrees of impact. I found Jackson at a pivotal point in my college career and this allowed for a huge impact to be had. Your mentor is out there, be ready for when they come into your life and take advantage of the opportunity.
Who you are today may not be who you are tomorrow. This is true for both Liann and I. We’re all still growing in life and the people we meet along the way have the ability to guide us in different directions. The people who will have the biggest impact on your life are out there. You just have to find them for yourself.
