Woowzah! That is one in a million things I can say about this amazing individual! Sometimes you will meet people who you know will make such a significant impact in so many lives that you are just honored to have them in your life. Madeline is that person! Being a mentor was something I didn’t think I would be great at but it ended up being such an honoring experience. You go into this relationship wanting the best and hoping to teach your mentee something, and hoping you did just that. Somewhere along the way, I feel as if I’ve learned more from Madeline than she has learned from me! Here are some things I’ve learned:

  1. Find what makes your heart burn with passion and stick to it
  2. Love endlessly
  3. Christmas is THE best season
  4. Puns are great
  5. To serve God in life
  6. Music speaks to the soul
  7. Family is forever
  8. BREAD IS AWESOME
  9. To embrace the weird
  10. SO MUCH MORE….

BEing a mentor has continually made me a better person everyday. I strive to be that person others can look up to and that will always be there for them in the end. Being a mentor is a blessing and Madeline is truly one to get to know! Thank you for not only being the beautiful person you are but for impacting my life and many others! You will for sure make a bomb mentor and gma is here to spoil her gbaby rotten.
