I’ve had the pleasure of mentoring Mirabelle through the Three Dot Dash program. When it comes to storytelling and community-building, she is as precocious as she is passionate. Mirabelle’s talent, energy, worldliness, work ethic, and humility have already opened many doors for her and will take her far. She is an outstanding young woman and deserves all the good things she will inevitably achieve.​
