Anthony’s Story

I am Anthony Holland and I aspire to be an electrical engineer.

Anthony is 16 years-old and a junior at Henry A. Wise High School in Prince George’s County. Quiet, reserved and rather unassuming, Anthony is the youngest son of two hardworking parents currently residing in Upper Marlboro.

Anthony started with M2M in September, but in that short time, his parents have already noticed a positive change. When he first walked into the Mentoring to Manhood headquarters, he was tentative.  His gait, body language, voice, projection, and eye contact were all signs of uncertainty and a lack of confidence. Just a few months later, when it was his turn to speak there was no hesitation. Anthony jumped up and walked confidently to the front of the room. His body language was engaging. His voice was commanding.  His projection was inspiring. His eyes were connecting. His message was powerful, “I am Anthony Holland and I aspire to be an electrical engineer”.

Anthony’s mother says, “The mentors go above and beyond with their time and energy to give the mentees the resources needed to be successful in life. Most importantly, Anthony now has another support system that is partnering with us as parents to reinforce the values that we have instilled in him. We absolutely love the program and we love the changes in our son as a result of the program”.
