I think of all of the young women I mentor and I don’t see color or Black or White but deep inside I always think of Kiara and my experience at Mercer. Kiara is one of my mentees. I remember my experience at Mercer and when they see me they know that I’m the Mentor not a current student and I’m Ayesha. I always remember that they mix Kiara and me up but when Kiara did the logo last semester for our group I thought she did such a cool job. I remember her saying something to me acknowledging me one time. I know as women depending on the race we can sometimes have issues with each other but women are all beautiful and powerful! We just need to empower each other.
