My name is Jayne Faux, a 17-year-old student who is currently attending Saint John's Junior College. I live in Benque Viejo del Carmen Town with my mother. I have always struggled with understanding the processes of many services in the world, such as community service and helping others grow closer to the best version of themselves. But luckily, I had mentors, Ms. Manuela Lue was one of them. You see, mentoring is about sharing your knowledge, experience, and guiding others on the right path. Ms. Manuela was a Godsend, appearing like a light in the darkness, always there willing to help me with whatever obstacle I was facing.
Through this journey, I learned that mentoring is about helping and sharing. It is about helping others build their foundation, boosting their self-esteem, and giving them motivation. It is not only about guiding others but also about helping them to grow outside of their comfort zone. When I was younger, I was scared to speak in public, but with the help of Ms. Manuela, I learned to love it. She pushed me slowly to greater and greater heights; it was there where I learned that flying high was the only option if I wanted to survive. Ms. Manuela challenged me; she helped me go beyond my boundaries. It was up to me if I was willing to refuse help. God has always guided me through prayer. Prayer helps me to see the light at the end of the tunnel. So don’t be afraid and soar high above the sky.
