Super Mentor for April 2017
Meet Shea, April’s Super Mentor! Kennedy and Shea have been friends since May 2016. They first hit it off when they discovered a shared excitement for Marvel superheroes. This had led to some long, spirited discussions over which superpower would be the best to have. They have found that they also enjoy many of the same activities, like reading, cooking, and spending time with family. Over the summer they spent a lot of time riding their bikes around some beautiful neighborhoods in south Minneapolis.
Once school started back up, they buckled down on homework, while still remembering to relax and enjoy themselves. Shea says “through Bolder Options we have had the wonderful opportunity to try many new activities that were out of both of our usual comfort zones, such as yoga, cross-country skiing, and rock climbing. Though we were by no means experts, we always learn a lot and have a ton of fun!”
