WHY THIS WORK IS IMPORTANT TO ME
Members of my family have ADHD but did not benefit from Eye to Eye. Our work matters to me because it ensures that more young people across the country have allies and partners and a vibrant community of people who understand and appreciate them. Eye to Eye’s team, Mentors, and partners demonstrate what’s possible when compassionate people work together to bring about positive change.
FAVORITE PART OF MY JOB
Spending time with Eye to Eye’s Mentors, Mentees, and partners. They inspire me!
