Imani Lewis is a great mentor because she cares about the whole girl. She joined Ladies of Virtue (LOV) because she felt like she wanted to share so many of her lessons learned and help mentor young ladies in areas that we don't typically learn in school. This is her calling.
Imani is the mentor of Destinee Bronson and has mentored her for two years. Before joining LOV, Destinee had just suffered a tragic loss when her brother was sent to jail. During her first year of LOV, Destinee was rather quiet and reserved. Imani has been a positive role model in Destinee’s life. She has participated at her prom, graduation, trunk party and she visited Destinee during her first year of college. Imani goes above and beyond what LOV requires of their mentors and has truly been life changing in Destinee’s life. Imani has taught Destinee how to make good decisions, always be prepared and to stand on strong values.
Imani Lewis has been a constant figure in Destinee's life since becoming her mentor. She has displayed sincerity when it comes to Destinee. Imani helped prepare Destinee for college by asking her to send her copies of her essays for scholarships to make sure she was answering the questions correctly. She even helped prepare Destinee for scholarship interviews. Imani actually spends quality time with Destinee as well. They go shopping, out to dinner, and even have sleepovers.
Imani Lewis displays leadership qualities, and Destinee looks up to her. She sees a young woman who has a career, her own house, and a car. Imani ensures that Destinee gives back to her community by having her do community service together. I also love our Imani incorporates Destinee’s mom in mentoring as well. Imani is also family oriented and is successful. Now, Destinee is on the right path in her first year in college and she credits her success to her mentor, Imani Lewis.
