Who's Who at Her Honor: Team Avila/Dilley

From kindergarten teacher to journalist, writer and illustrator to chef, Rosie has bounced through career options like a pinball - jumping from one idea to the next, curious about the many opportunities the world holds for her.

However, as a senior in high school, for Rosie, this is a bit daunting — or, as she says, “[it] scares me to death.” Rosie is not alone in this feeling. According to a recent study, 67% of high school students reported feeling stressed about getting into college.

Who's Who at Her Honor: Team Urritia/Martinez x 2!

When Her Honor Mentoring was founded over ten years ago, we couldn’t have known the impact it would have. Over the years, we’ve seen mentees (and mentors!) create change in themselves, and, through those changes, seen the ripples spread amidst their families and throughout their communities. We’ve seen the ways in which mentees lift each other up — older sisters and cousins encouraging their younger peers to apply, inviting them into a community that had deep impact on their own lives. Gloria Urritia is one such mentee.

Who's Who at Her Honor: Team Pani/Anderson

Several months ago, Michelle Pani, a senior at White Plains High School, was uncertain about her nomination to the Her Honor Mentoring program. “I was indecisive on what to think. I never considered seeking a mentor,” writes Michelle in her application essay. Unclear on her next steps and wanting to learn more about the opportunity, Michelle headed to the HHM website. In browsing the site, she quickly found a surefire sign that this was the program for her. “There was Martha Anderson, my mother’s hero, as a mentor,” Michelle writes, “It wasn’t a coincidence... it was a sign.”

Being part of the HerHonor experience has been a blessing and opportunity I will never forget. My mentor is the Chief of the White Plains Police Department. She is passionate about her job and the whole police department. Through her example I understood that some days chaos will take over you but it's up to you to endure the problem and make the best of it. My mentor also showed the loved she had for me. I had a personal problem and I was able to talk to her about it because I trusted her enough. She was able to give me advice and help me get through it. I see her as a mother figure and I can tell she cares about my feelings and problems.
