I have chosen Felecia Brown my oldest sister as mentor because she is supportive, ambitious and reliable. She is a Systems Analyst for Pepsi America Corporation in Schaumburg, IL. She has a way of inspiring you to be the best at whatever it is you do in life and in your career. She has inspired me to continue my education in nursing so I can advance my career as a nurse. Through this you will come to know why I’ve chosen her as a mentor.
First, she is supportive because when our mother passed, I was living an apartment with her and caring for her until her death.
I couldn’t go on living there after she had past. I was very sad and emotional wreck. I couldn’t concentrate on work or pay the bills. My sister stepped in and moved my kids and I in with her. I became very depressed after my Mom death. I didn’t know what was going on with me or what to do with myself.
My sister was there for me again to advise and support me. She had lost her husband about 5 years prior to us losing our Mom. She dealt with that loss and showed me how to cope with this loss. Also, I have a daughter away at college. She calls my sister often for her guidance and support.
Secondly, her ambitiousness shows while working at Pepsi she has taken advantage of their continuing education program to get her advancement as the Systems Analyst.
She started out there about 12years ago as a data entry specialist. She went to school at night and worked during the day. All while taking care of her son and husband at that time. She has a Bachelor degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and a Bachelor degree in Business Administration. Also, while at Pepsi she has help to form the African-American Business Opportunity Program which she is the Co-Chairman.
In this program they set-up job fairs and help with the selection for internship. Through this program her employers had a chance to see her in action. Finally she is reliable because I have elected to start school in the evening and work during the day. I cannot always be there to pick up my daughter at her different school functions and her part-time job she is always there to pick her up. If she has to go someplace and you are riding with her, she will be on time to get you there. She has never let me down.
Also, when we have our family reunion in Chicago the family looks to her to take the lead. We organized a fundraiser selling dinners. I sold a large order at my place of employment. On the day the dinners were to arrive, the person who was to drive and make deliveries canceled at the last minute. My sister stepped in, after cooking all morning. She made sure the dinners I had sold were there on time for lunch as I had promised, even though she was tired from cooking all morning. Enclosing, if I had to choose a mentor for my daughters other than my mother, she is the best candidate.
She will always be there for you and give great advice in difficult situations. I have taking her advice on several different occasions. She has inspired me to continue my education. She has spoken to young women at my daughter’s school about being a African-American woman in corporate America and living abroad in Germany before the Wall came down. She has a vast number of experiences she an share with people. I have shown why she is supportive, reliable and ambitious. She is in part a great example of strength and dedication for young and old to inspire to.
