Mentee Blog: Franc

I was accepted into Pathways two years ago, during the summer of 2018. My life has changed exponentially since then.

Before being accepted into Pathways, I was lost, broken, and had very little hope of having a future. Through my weekly therapy sessions with my amazing Pathways therapist, I have been able to greatly heal from childhood wounds of abuse and trauma. In addition to therapy, I receive weekly wisdom and guidance through my loving and wonderful Pathways mentor. I have my confidence and self-worth back because of this program and as a result, I have a 4.0 GPA, am in the Alpha Gamma Sigma Honors Society, and am on the Dean’s List. My dream and goal is to become a clinical research psychologist so that I may be able to help others in the extraordinary way that Pathways has helped me.

To all of the donors, volunteers, and supporters of Pathways, I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your generosity, kindness, and love. Pathways would not exist if it weren’t for you. You directly impact each and every one of our lives as Pathways clients, and the direct impact you have on my life is more than words could ever adequately describe. Because of your selfless support of Pathways, I now have hope, self-esteem, and a very bright
future ahead of me. I cannot express the magnitude of what your support means to me, as I would not have this gift of having a happy and purposeful life without you. For that and so much more, I sincerely thank you.
