Our Goal in #MentorMeet


In our past year with #MentorMeet we have been featuring and getting to know individuals within our MentorMe Learning community and throughout Southern California, in hopes of inspiring and connecting people. We have had the opportunity to interview local CEOs, non-profits, small business owners, volunteers, and so much more! This week on #MentorMeet we wanted to shine a light on some of our previous features and some of the specular folks involved.

What are you passionate about?

“Something that I’m passionate about is just overall making a difference. Whether that be on a small or large scale, community based or even internationally, and specifically to do with the environment. I just, I love that. I feel like it’s something that every human, every species, has in common. We’re all here on this planet and if I can make a difference or inspire someone to make one change in their life, even just making their voice heard.” -Jayde Bahrami, Programs Manager for Tidal Influence, a local nonprofit and ecological consulting firm

✨What does "mentoring" mean to you?

"Being a positive role model to everyone around & helping people however I can. I like to show people by example & inspire them to make positive changes in their lives." -Seth Matson, CEO & Founder of Drains to Oceans, a local nonprofit trying to keep pollution from entering our rivers, lakes, and oceans

✨What is one positive thing you've seen come out of the challenges we all faced in 2020?

"We have come together as a community, and found ways to put on events like the MML Drive-In Movies, where we work with the circumstances we are given, and make the best out of it. The whole community is focusing on what we CAN do instead of what we can't do right now." -Katie, a Fountain Valley High School Senior, the co-president of her school's Rotary Interact Club, and MML volunteer

✨Why are you choosing to give your time to be a part of MentorMe Learning?

"I love Mentor Me Learning's mission and believe it's imperative for young people to identify what they're passionate about as early as possible, learn what's already going on out there in their area of interest, and start getting actual experience in doing what they love." -Lachelle Carrozza, MentorMe Learning board member and local entrepreneur
