Works Cited Bey, Amani. "Methods." Personal interview. 28 Jan. 2013. I interview Amani because she is a teenager guided by mentorship. She revealed to me how being mentored by positive, loving, and caring people has changed who she is as a person. She said “I see a big change in myself. It’s like my whole life I’ve been so angry and upset, and it was all because I was being misguided and I didn’t have the chance to become who I am now.” This interview helped me because It kind of showed me what type of response I should be getting from the kids in my program.

I also got a chance to find out what she took from the experience as a person who had been mentored and decided to pass it on. I think that this interview was very helpful and very successful.

Going to the shelter is about more than helping others its also a branch of growth for myself. "Poetic Devices." Poetic Devices. N.p., n.d. Web. 01 Feb. 2013. This is a link to a list of poetic devices. This link will be useful because I know that even I don’t know so It’ll help me and help the kids at the program. "Poetry." Wikipedia.

This will be helpful because it will give a mor formal introduction than me saying this is was a metaphor is. It will actually explain to them what things are and how they should be used. I also think that this will show the kids the overall brand of poetry so that they know that poetry can be almost anything. This will be just an outline for what I want the kids to take from this program come April or May. Shearlds, Khalil. "Mentorship." Personal interview. 7 Jan. 2013.
