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.

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.


My mentor, Nancy White, is the hardest working person I know. She has impacted me on both a professional and personal level. I saw her creativity as an asset to keep sales up. She always is so determined and keeps a positive mind to back it up. The way she runs her business amazes me and has given me hope to be something big in the future. I've been mentored on how to listen, and speak to people professionally, and most importantly, to be proud of my work. She makes me feel important.
