What's been the best piece of advice your mentor has given you? What impact has this had on you?
The best piece of advice my mentor gave me was to narrow down specific elements of roles that I enjoyed and to create a wish list based on this. This helped me immensely in finding a job role which aligned with what I really wanted to do. The advice was invaluable.
What advice to you have for other mentees or those looking for a mentor?
DO IT! Mentors have a wealth of expertise and knowledge both in their respective roles and in life, in general! Be sure to ask about your mentor's life, work and life journey. It goes a long way in establishing a great relationship and helps you consider roles and paths that you may not have even known about.
What would you say to recommend mentoring to other alumni?
Mentors are such a valuable resource for students and alumni alike. If you have the time and capacity, please consider it. Your knowledge and skills will always be useful to someone else.
What (or who) has had the biggest influence on you to help you achieve your success?
My parents. They worked very hard to support me and my siblings and provide us with all the opportunities possible so we could succeed in life.
