Hi, my name is Renè and I am currently a community mentor at Liberty Disability Services. I consider myself to be the type of person to think of others before myself. Growing up in a diverse culture has assisted me in growing as a person morally. It has taught me to take care and treat others the way I would like to be treated. These compassionate qualities will greatly assist me with what will hopefully be, new friendships along the way.
