WHO’S THE BRAINS BEHIND THE COURSE?

LEARN MORE ABOUT YOUR MENTOR

Hi! I’m Yadi Filipiak Founder of Girls Mentoring Girls, Inc. I’m so passionate about helping girls like you get prepared for college, that I created an entire organization to do it!  I’ve recently launched www.girlsmentoringgirls.org so I can share this much needed advice with you.

I’ve always known I wanted to be a teacher and I have taught for many years but I really wanted to teach more than just the lessons in a book. I felt the urge to teach things that had a much bigger impact. 

I feel that everything I’ve been through and everything I’ve learned so far in my life, has prepared me to be here with you at this moment. It has prepared me to positively impact your life at one of its most defining phases.

I’ve spent the last 15 years of my life working with students in schools and non-profit organizations and I was inspired to create this organization and this course not only by the students around me but by my own personal struggles, unique to us girls.

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Promotion and Health Education from the University of Texas at El Paso and am a Certified Health Education Specialist. A certificate I earned through the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc.  I’ve also held certifications in Adventure Education which is based on experiential education and mostly done outdoors. It is usually taught in an outdoor setting and often involves a ropes course, including zip lining, rock climbing, and a variety of other outdoor activities that help personal development and team building.

 

But better than that, I’ve been helping girls, like you, that are going to college for the last 3 years. The experience has been extremely impactful for all of us. 

I want to impact your life too.

You will have direct access to me and you will have the chance to ask me any questions you want. In return I will be providing you with all of the support and encouragement for you to succeed in the course and be well prepared for college life.

Together we are going to accomplish great things!

Girls Mentoring Girls has been amazing throughout my freshman year in college. As an incoming freshman in college I had no idea what to expect and no matter how prepared I thought I was to live on my own, things didn’t work the way I expected them to. My first semester was a little hectic since I didn’t know how to make or keep a budget, keep myself organized with all my school work or how to keep myself motivated when I felt like everything was falling apart. It’s safe to say that thanks to GMG I’ve learn how to do all those things and even more. Now I’m finally prepared to experience college the way I should…stress free! I recommend this program 100% to girls who are about to go to college or are already in it because it truly helps make college life easier and less stressful.

I can personally say that Yadi’s mentorship and coming together frequently with girls like myself through GMG has grown me into the outgoing leader that I am today. Specifically, GMG has helped me to achieve success in the demanding life of a high school senior by guiding me in leading the American Red Cross Club at my school as president and helping me to keep my grades up while participating in several extracurricular activities. GMG also helped me through the exhausting college application process; by effectively utilizing the resources and organization charts that were provided to me by my mentor, Yadi, I was able organize to-do lists for each college that I applied to and finish applying to each school by its according deadline. In using this process, I can proudly say that I have a great future at Emory University.
Also, during one of the GMG meetings Yadi taught us the importance of committing random acts of kindness for the sake of benefitting society and suggested we write thank you cards to our school janitors to show our appreciation of them. I was inspired by this idea so I brought it to the Red Cross Club and consequently, over forty thank you cards were made for our janitors in just thirty minutes.
GMG has taught me to always have a positive outlook on life. I remember in another one of our GMG meetings when Yadi taught us that the things people regret most in life are the things they never got to do. From this, I learned to take advantage of, or at least consider great opportunities that come my way in college because these opportunities could open new doors that could change my life for the better. In being a part of GMG, I know that there is always someone who I can turn to when I am in need of advice, and this advice I will apply to my college life and forever after.
