My current experience with the Hispanic 100 mentor program has been nothing but magnificent. I find it very motivating to see dedicated mentors donate their time, knowledge, and connections to passionate students in order to help them reach their professional goals.

As a current mentee, this program is benefiting me by giving me opportunities in many areas, including but not limited to scholarship opportunities, volunteer opportunities, networking opportunities, etc. If it wasn?t for this program, I would not have been able to meet my current mentor, from who I have learned many valuable things about in regards to entrepreneurship, and what it takes to start a new business.

What I like the most about this program is that it has educated us and exposed us to things that cannot be offered in a typical classroom. It feels good to know that we have mentors and mentees cheering us on, helping us, and believ-ing that we can accomplish what we set our minds to.

My involvement with the Hispanic 100 Mentor pro-gram will not stop after my graduation in November. In fact, I will be better prepared to give back to my community upon my graduation from this program; I plan to continue to volun-teer for events, give advice to future mentees, and in the future when I have accomplished all my goals, I will remem-ber to come back and serve as a mentor and provide the same support and motivation this program was able to give me during my journey to success.

So far my experience with Hispanic 100 has been the best because my mentor has provided me with various career advice, as well as teaching me more about what is entailed with owning my own business. This program is positive to me because it allows me to seek help from various mentors, not just one.

I have met a variety of mentors and mentees, all which are always willing to help in both personal and profes-sional situations. I hope to one day contribute to Hispanic 100 by being part of the committee, continuing to find stu-dents who could benefit from this program, and one day be able to use my success to benefit those who grew up in similar situations, so that they one day have the opportunity they do not always receive. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I just graduated from the University of California Irvine and obtained my B.A in Business Administration with a minor in political science. I emphasized in accounting and my goal is to obtain a CPA license.

Ten years from now, I see myself being the owner of either my own business or in the entertainment business. I also wish to one day give back to the underprivileged Latino community that grew up in the same environment, so that they can also be successful and contribute to the community by creating multiple opportunities.

Maria Elena Banks

I have had the pleasure to be a mentee of the Hispanic 100 Mentor Program. Being in the program as a mentee has positively impacted my life. Currently as a student, I have been enabled to experience opportunities in which growth and development are prone to guide my leadership style into my future career. I have learned to carry myself in a profes-sional, pleasant, and confident manner due to the program.

Working in a mentor/mentee capacity with Maria Elena Banks as my Hispanic 100 Mentor has fostered my professional and personal development as a leader. I am developing my strengths and I cannot emphasizes enough how blessed I am to be surrounded by successful, inspiring mentors. I can only repay them by being someone like them in my own uniqueness in all the actions I take. This is one of the main program?s that has led to my personal growth and success this year.

Aside from being able to meet other students from different campuses with high aspirations as me, meeting professionals that are willing to give their time to provide any advice or guidance to make my peers and I better leaders is something I wholeheartedly appreciated. I find it compelling that the program successfully bridges Hispanic professionals and students within their three main focuses of leadership, advocacy, and community.
