I was 15 and going into my freshman year of high school when I first met Sean. I quickly began to see Sean as a mentor. Through the years, he has played a major role in my growth into the man I am today. Sean has always been there to give me sound advice and offer guidance when I get off track. He has a gift for a type of honesty that is straightforward yet kind; this has impacted me and has changed the way I interact in my relationships. I still count Sean as a close friend.
