 Name: Heather Bright

  Occupation: 3rd Grade Teacher

  How many years have you been a mentor/volunteer with FG? 2 years

  What do you like most about being a part of FG?  I love empowering young
   women to be confident in their talents.  I love that we always do a
   circle of exultation in which we compliment our sister on the right and tell
one thing that we learned from any given event.  It reminds us to be

   grateful and celebrate each other's beauty.

   What has been your most memorable experience or event? Why?  My most
   memorable experience with Fertile Ground is always the Martin Luther
   King Jr. parade.  This is a time where we spend hours just talking and having
   fun.  We build relationships with all of the girls that attend and get
   to know what they like and don't like.  During the parade there is no
   pressure to "connect" or talk with one another and the process is natural.        It's always my favorite part of the year because I get to see the girls
   sparkle as they wave to the crowd.  It's like walking in the parade allows            them to feel as beautiful and important as they really are.

  What would you say to others who may be contemplating becoming a               mentor with our program? Being a part of Fertile Ground isn't just for the
   mentees, but for the mentors as well.  I've been so supported during
   this very difficult year and have learned a lot from the girls in the

   What word(s) would you use to describe FG? Empowering is the best word
   to describe Fertile Ground, whether it's dinner or learning how to dance,
   girls and women alike encourage and empower each other to be their best
