I had the chance to go and present my nonprofit to Mentor Me. They were all very nice. They have agreed to partner with SSK. We will provide the kids they serve a science station kids night and kits for the mentors and kids to do together when they meet. I am so excited for this opportunity and hope to someday be able to tutor and mentor a little kid through this program when I’m older. Mentor Me’s mission is to help children reach their potential through mentoring relationships with positive adults.
My name is Angelica Krubeck and I am 12 years old. I love science. It's one of my favorite things to do. When I was 8, one of my friends opened up to me. She shared how she grew up in a shelter and how hard every day was. After that conversation, I decided I wanted to help kids like her in some way. Science I love and kids I love, so put them together and it just makes sense. I knew that some kids out there don't get the chance to be creative with science, like how I do. I strongly believe that no kid should be without the education and enjoyment of science! Not only does it help them get away from their worries for a little while, but it also provides education to them. I hope to inspire kids to do great things, to succeed in science, and to develop a love for science despite the challenges they are facing in their life.
