Mentor Statement: I was blessed with a fabulous mentor twenty years ago. Stephen B. Smith watched me live life, grow, fail, be scared and succeed. I can share those life experiences with a mentee. I know that being a mentor opens me and my mentee up to all kinds of possibilities; events, opportunities, experiences, challenges and even rewards. I know we will learn and evolve and become better people from the experience.
