Amber King conducts mentoring program for freshmen girls
Alcorn State University’s reigning queen Amber King aims to mold first year college girls into young women with her new initiative.
King’s “From Babies to Ladies” mentoring program, which started at the beginning of the fall semester, is designed to pair upper class ladies with freshmen young ladies to provide guidance on building positive relationships and matriculating through college life. King said that the program is near to her heart and wants to create a sisterly vibe among ladies at Alcorn.
“This program is important to me,” said King. “There are young ladies who need that extra push and sense of sisterly support to really enjoy a full college experience. I wanted to welcome freshmen ladies and provide leadership and advice that they can relate to.”
King looked back on her freshman year of college and realized how significant a mentor would have been for her educational and social journey on campus.
“If I would have had someone to mentor me during my freshman year of college, things would have been much easier. This program will help make the ladies’ tenure here at Alcorn exciting and memorable. Guiding these young ladies is a way of helping them to get involved in different organizations around campus.”
