Opportunity to Mentor

On my way back from CMU to Pitt. I received a text from my friend, who is the Director of Advising for the men’s basketball and football team at Pitt. He asked me if I knew of the football player, who was in my class? I said I think he is in my Monday night class. He said, oh okay, do you think you might be able to help him? I said, I can try what classes does he have this semester? He has politics and history (I had this class last year. It was not easy), research methodology (I had this class my first-year. It wasn’t easy as well), and Internship class (I am in that class now). I told my friend that he has a little bit of a tough schedule. I said to him to have him approach me during class, and I can help him if he wants to meet. I would feel weird approaching him.

That evening in class, we had to do some ice breakers with other people at different tables. It just so happens the football player was at my table. I told him that my name is Danielle, and that I was friends with Mike and I can help him if he wanted. He said, ya, he told me to reach out to you. I said, we can meet after this class, if you want, or we can set up another time to meet. He said, ya whatever works for you. I am going to need help.” I said, I will do my best.

After class, we connected and I gave him my number. I had not a clue how to do this, but I do want to work with athletics in the future, so perhaps this is good practice.
