LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The need for mentors in our community continues... Tonight, we introduce you to an aspiring nurse who is hoping to be the next person matched with a mentor.
14-year-old Faith Shirley has a passion for helping others
"I just like to nurture kids, to watch after them," Faith says.
And that's what she wants to dedicate her career to.
"Be a registered nurse," Faith says, on her career aspirations.
And she would like a mentor who is a nurse who can help her achieve that goal.
"I would ask her more about being a nurse. I just want to nurture kids and be there if they don't have anybody else," Faith says.
Faith says she is blessed and is thankful for her family and friends and she tries to help those who don't have someone to lean on.
"Most kids get bullied. Some kids don't live with their parents, they're out on the streets or they're struggling to have food," Faith says. "The mentor can help me help kids learns to love themselves."
A teenager set out to change the world -- someday as nurse -- and for now, as a mentor to her own peers, hoping to get a mentor of her own to lead and help her make a difference.
