I am a (soon to be declared) Political Science major and Africana Studies minor. I became a SAW Mentor because I wanted the opportunity to work with and help my peers, just like my First Year Seminar mentor did with me. The benefits I received from her guidance are endless and I know that my experiences working with her will continue to benefit me for years to come. Having a peer mentor allowed me to learn and grow as a writer by acquiring the skills necessary to develop a solid and convincing argument. From that point on, I found a confidence in myself and my writing that was unique and powerful. Being a part of the SAW program gives me the chance to do the same for others and to help them discover and develop their own voice.
