Why did you become a peer mentor?

College is a challenging obstacle that people tend to feel they have to face alone. Once meeting people, you realize everyone is just trying to help. As a peer mentor, there’s a chance to help out people that have faced the same challenges as I have before.

What advice would you give an SoIC student?

Even when you think it gets worse, there’s always something good- just ask for help!
