Hey Juliet- I think it is awesome that you want to mentor a student at
convention. However, I think you are going to have a full plate dealing with
all of the scholarship activities. Congratulations again on being one of the
national scholarship winners.

Hello Lady!
That was a great announcement, and  am finally done with final papers and
can respond to your calling. I would love to mentor a newby. I have the
honor of being a scholarship winner, so a student would probably be best. I
know Peter is wanting  to also mentor so maybe we can both get students,
that way when I have to do the scholarship stuff they can all hang out
together. We both have experience with our youth, and we want to give back.
Waiting for your respond,
Juliet and Marly
Peter and Aerie
