Janessa (&) Angie
Meet Angie Sharp and Janessa Calderon, two of our Strike a Match participants. Angie is mentoring Janessa and the two have have been matched for a few months. They have found connection and purpose as a result of their new relationship.
Janessa just started a new job as an Admissions Counselor at St. Ambrose University and Angie admitted that she thought it might be a little rocky for an Augie grad and an Ambrose grad to strike a match together. However, they were both pleasantly surprised!
We asked Janessa what she thought about her time with Angie so far and this is what she has to say:
We love everything about this - we love that two people who might not have found each other are now connected in a meaningful way that fuels their success and inspires them to lead.
This is why mentoring matters - because people like Angie and Janessa are able to share their experience and wisdom with each other to ignite their potential. Great work, ladies and thank you for sharing your story with us!
