Julia & Debbie

As a young adult growing up on New York City's Lower East Side, Julia had a lot of ambition but didn't initially envision college as part of her future. Her mentor, Debbie, helped change all of that. Now, Julia is the first in her family to have earned a college degree. Ten years since they first met, the women have a deep friendship. And Julia is paying it forward by mentoring a high school student with iMentor.
