“I like being able to interact with and assist my students who attend [Austin Community College.] Being able to meet up with students at the office or at ACC Highland has helped to build stronger relationships with them… I believe in the near-peer mentoring model that College Forward uses to support our students because having an extra support system while going through college has proven to be very beneficial for the students I work with.”
