My mentor has been so incredibly helpful. Prior to meeting with her, I was all over the place and overwhelmed by career options. She has helped me narrow down options that suit my interests and skills and is providing me with excellent resources to prepare myself for the industry.

My engagement with my mentee has been overwhelmingly positive.
