Elizabeth’s Story

Elizabeth Gaitan

I work for the Social Security Administration, an agency of the federal government dedicated to administering the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income Programs and providing services to the public. I was motivated to join StudentMentor.org because it provided me with the opportunity to assist others in an informal setting. I have met some excellent mentors throughout my life whose advice and support helped me achieve many of my accomplishments. Studentmentor.org gives me the chance to pay it forward by allowing me to share all of the advice I have received and some I have learned on my own to positively impact the lives of others.

I have been helping my mentee with career and school choices and giving him advice based on my knowledge and experiences from a professional standpoint. This experience has been very rewarding because I have the opportunity to positively impact someone else’s life-making decisions.

I highly recommend getting involved with StudentMentor.org to others. StudentMentor.org provides an easy and convenient way to volunteer and help others in one of the biggest milestones in their lives.
