Andrea Hurtado: Artisans Reflection

       This past week my mentee, Jim, and I were reunited after a month long winter break. The Knights and Setons were given the opportunity, through Artisans, to attend a women’s basketball game with our mentees and the event was such a special time where Jim and I were able to share laughs, our love for Gonzaga basketball, and an absurd amount of popcorn. Jim has been talking about going to a basketball game for a while now so it made me really happy that I was able to be there with him.
       Through the conversations that Jim and I have shared over the course of this year so far I can see a definite improvement in the way that he interacts with others. When we first began, Jim came off as a bit timid, yet over time I have noticed become much more comfortable talking and joking around with not only me, but also the others participating in this program. I
       It is awesome to see the types of relationships that the Knights and Setons are able to build through Artisans and has made it clear to me that we really are capable of making a difference in the lives of others. My experience with Artisans this year has been very rewarding and I cannot wait for what’s to come.
