  • Mentee of the Month – Simon Lee

    December 7, 2014 by admin

    Simon Lee is a senior at Chapel Hill High School and is currently in his second year of involvement with Movement of Youth.

    Simon says that his experience with the program has been very fruitful. “I [have] most definitely benefited from the networking opportunities that have risen from my participation,” says Simon.

    He says that his favorite experience with the program thus far has been the session last year where he met UNC professor Pierce Freelon. Through this networking opportunity, Simon was able to obtain summer classes geared towards music production, which is his current career. This opportunity led to a summer internship with the Beat Making Lab, which he now runs on Tuesdays.

    After he graduates from high school in May, Simon plans to enlist in the Marine Reserve and to enroll in college in Spring 2016. He is currently waiting to hear back from Columbia University and Arizona State University, his top two prospective school choices.
