"Dr. Conway always provided a listening ear and sound advice. The older I get, I find that genuine mentorship is difficult to come by. She is truly a gem...for the I Am Abel Foundation.

I often find it hard to explain to others just how significant having an African-American mentor in this field can be, particularly when navigating pathways that not many have traversed before us. So I know Sweetie must be a particular comodity as a God-fearing, encouraging, knowledgable mentor --- And yet, she always has time to talk to and encourage me. I am excited to help her vision come to fruition through the I Am Abel Foundation, because if it's even an ounce of the help she has already given to me, it is sure to be epic.

She built me up to the point that I was actually confident enough to apply. In the end, all of the schools I applied to...I was accepted into. I actually would have never thought that was possible without her help."

-2nd Lt. Valynn Antoine, BS, MS2

I sought a mentor who could relate to me..for her [Sweetie], it wasn't just straight medical advice. It was important to me to have a minority mentor. I hope that if you're able to get into this Foundation and be in her presence, and learn from her, that you just soak up everything that she's telling you.
