When Aisatou Toure met R&B star Mary J. Blige, they had a heart-to-heart talk about the importance of self-esteem and confidence — two qualities the Harlem teen seeks to encourage in the younger students she mentors.
Aisatou, 16, who is a junior this year at the School of the Future HS, regularly returns to her middle school, KIPP: Star College Prep Charter, where she organizes other alumni to mentor students, tutors those who are struggling academically, helps teachers create extracurricular events like dance and theater, and encourages students to strive for college.
