Antilica Xiong said that being a part of Common Wealth’s Youth-Business Mentoring Program changed her life. “I’m not antisocial anymore,” said Tili, a high school freshman. After being in the mentoring program, Tili was placed in a job at a frozen yogurt store.
Tili said her confidence has improved, and “being with other people has helped.” She learned how to interact with her supervisor–both giving and receiving feedback. Tili now foresees not only college but law school in her future, so that “I can stand up for things I’m passionate about.”
