“What a marvelous experience to join the Challenge Program as a mentor and have the unique joy of Priscilla in my life! Watching this shy 12-year-old-girl, grow into a self-confident and mature young woman has been delightful. I’m so glad I’ve been able to bond with her, provide unique experiences and lend support and encouragement. We have shared much and will continue our relationship into the future.”
“Joining the Loretto Challenge program as a mentor, I prayed to be able to guide my mentee and help with life lessons. Upon meeting Alexa Marquez, I saw a sweet young girl with big eyes and a smile that could warm anyone’s heart and our 7-year journey began. There were ups and downs, closeness and a bit of distance, laughter, annual Christmas teas, Halloween bunco games, girl talk, shared meals, the teenage years, and college fairs. I’ve had the privilege of seeing this young girl evolve into an intelligent, giving, strong, confident young woman ready to make her mark on the world. As I look back, I realize I have to thank Alexa for her life lesson to me - that opening your heart to mentor a young girl is not a challenge, but a blessing that forever warms your heart.”
“Mentoring has brought Diana and me a relationship that is enriching, interesting, and inciteful. We’ve learned about each other and ourselves in her journey through Junior and High School. Knowing what I know now, I’m so grateful I didn’t miss this opportunity for joy, growth, and a lifelong friendship.”
