December Mentee of The Month
"Keymaya"

 A SMILE IS THE LIGHT IN YOUR WINDOW THAT TELLS OTHERS THAT THERE IS A CARING, SHARING PERSON INSIDE.” WHEN WE THINK OF THIS MONTH’S MENTEE OF THE MONTH, THE 1ST THING WE THINK OF IS THE SMILE THAT SHE OFFERS US EACH AND EVERY WEEK THAT BRIGHTENS UP EVEN OUR CLOUDIEST OF DAYS. WHEN INITIALLY MEETING KEYMAYA, HER WORDS ...SHORT AND HER BODY LANGUAGE SHOWED THAT SHE WAS JUST “LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO DO”. WHEN ASKING HER ABOUT HERSELF, SHE TOLD US STORIES OF HER PAST IN WHICH SHE MADE SOME VERY POOR CHOICES THAT CAUSED HURT TO NOT ONLY HERSELF BUT TO HER IMMEDIATE FAMILY, SPECIFICALLY HER MOTHER. IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE SAME YOUNG LADY THAT WE MET THAT DAY. SINCE THAT SESSION, THIS LADY HAS BLOSSOMED INTO SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SOUL! WE CAN COUNT ON HER EACH AND EVERY WEEK TO SHOW UP AND ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN EVERY DISCUSSION AND ACTIVITY THAT WE ASK OF HER. THE GROWTH IN THIS YOUNG LADY IS UNDENIABLE NOT ONLY WITH HER ATTITUDE BUT ACADEMICS AS WELL. EXCELLING AT BASKETBALL, KEYMAYA HAS A SPECIFIC PLAN THAT INCLUDES GOING TO COLLEGE AND PLAYING BASKETBALL. SHE ALSO HAS A SECONDARY PLAN OF OPENING UP HER OWN BUSINESS IF SHE IS UNABLE TO PLAY PRO BASKETBALL. RECENTLY, KEYMAYA HAS HAD SOME HEALTH ISSUES THAT CAUSED A SLIGHT SCARE HOWEVER, SHE SHOWED US JUST HOW MUCH OF A FIGHTER SHE WAS AND HAS FOUGHT IT HEAD FIRST WITH A SMILE ON HER FACE. SHE CAN OFTEN BE HEARD TELLING OUR MENTORS “YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW MUCH THESE SESSIONS HELPS ME!” KEYMAYA YOU ARE TRULY ONE IN A MILLION!!!!!.Type your paragraph here.
