In celebration of National Mentoring Month, join some of the Fall 2022 Dinah F.B. Cohen NDMC DREAM Fellows for a discussion on the impact of mentorship in their lives. Moderated by PYD Inclusion Communities Manager, Nicole Homerin, fellows Kadaline Jackel, Hadley Kronick, and Abdurazak Abdu will engage in a discussion highlighting the importance of mentorship in their lives. The fellows will also discuss how they developed skills throughout young adulthood to become leaders and mentors to others.
About the presenters:
Hadley Kronick is from Baton Rouge, LA. I am a sophomore at Wellesley College, majoring in Neuroscience with a possible minor in Studio Arts. Helping others has always been my passion. I hope to educate myself and become a useful resource for many through this program. I have worked with many different groups to advocate for those with disabilities, including the Epilepsy Foundation, where I participated in a program called “Teens Speak Up” and later became an Awareness Ambassador, and the Danny Did Foundation. I am an experienced leader and public speaker, as well as an open-minded person who is always looking to learn.
Kadaline Jackel (she/her) is a graduate at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, studying Forensic Psychology. She graduated summa cum laude from Hofstra University, where she studied Psychology. Additionally, Kadaline co-founded and led the Hofstra chapter of DREAM. Upon graduating from John Jay, she hopes to pursue a J.D., with which she will continue her disability advocacy. When she is not studying or advocating for inclusivity and accessibility, Kadaline crochets and spends time with her cat (and best friend), Tater. She looks forward to working with this year’s Dinah F.B. Cohen DREAM fellows!
Abdurazak Abdu (he/him) is a recent graduate with a J.D. He also has LL.B and LL.M degrees. Abdu is enthusiastic to use the skills gained from law school to advance disability rights particularly in the field of employment and education. He has lived and worked in Africa and Asia. Abdu is a good team player with diverse and multicultural background. Currently, he is actively searching for a job while getting ready for the bar exam.
