Studying physics is incredibly rewarding, and challenging. Successful people depend on mentors to help them. The APS National Mentoring Community is an effort to increase the success of underrepresented minority students in physics by providing a structured mentoring experience.

[The NMC program] opened my chances for opportunities I thought I would never have. I mean that with the deepest sincerities.
[The NMC program] connected me to other physicists and afforded me [the] visibility of our diversity. Physicists get typecast into a certain demeanor, look, and nature, but NMC brought together various physicists of all types. It bolstered the self-confidence that I had knowing that we are unified by the pursuit of answers, but otherwise diverse.
