Rating: 5 stars  

I am a current Sophomore at Biola University, I was a member of Elevate Your Game and saw first hand how the program inspired students to reach higher. The relationships built in the program continue to have a deep impact and the lessons learned are still relevant beyond High School.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My self-esteem and goal setting.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The ability to serve even more students.

I was a mentoree of this wonderful mentoring program. I started in this mentoring program my sophomore year until my senior year thanks to the advice of one of my closest friends. When I joined, three of my friends joined the program as well. Throughout these three years, I was able to improve my grades, define my career goals, and gain invaluable networking skills. As a result, I became my class valedictorian with the highest GPA. Currently, I am finishing my bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering from UC Merced.

Thanks to Elevate Your G.A.M.E., I was able to gain the skills that most likely are attained through internships. My first internship was at Xerox in the Public Relations Dept while my second internship was at Lerma Law office. Without these internships, I would not have been able to obtain my current job as a Student Assistant in the School of Engineering Dean's office at UC Merced, for the past three years.

As a result of my enthusiasm, I was able to motivate my two younger sisters of joining the program at Compton High. As the mentoring program continues to expand, I am positive that it will continue to impact the student's lives as well as the mentors.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many wonderful ways.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

nothing, absolutely nothing.
