Cultural Peer Mentor Program
Cultural Peer Mentors (CPMs) are student leaders who help new international students become acclimated to Marymount Manhattan College and to the larger New York City community. They are role models, advisors, and friends, but most of all, they are students themselves who care about helping their classmates from abroad integrate seamlessly into college life.
Meet the Cultural Peer Mentors
Emily A.Pronouns: She/herMajor: BFA Acting Third YearAbout Me: I am Brazilian American and fun fact about me is that I speak Portuguese! I decided to be a part of the IC’s mentorship programs because I knowing how hard it is to transition into college. I wanted to be that person that students can rely on. It’s not easy figuring out everything on your own and just knowing that there are other people who are going through the same thing is really refreshing.
Marcie F.Pronouns: She/herMajor: Psychology and minoring in Art TherapyAbout Me: My name is Marsonise Fils but everyone calls me Marcie. I’m originally from the beautiful Island of Haïti and came here at a young age, so I know how hard it is to get used to a new environment, so I hope that my experience and my knowledge will be able to guide you in your journey here at MMC. (FYI if you never had Haitian food you are missing out). I love to have new experiences, my interests are painting, reading, doing nails, doing hair, and trying to be the best me that I can be be.
