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 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.
