How does it work?
Monica Sadik, 2nd Year
As many university students know, first year can be a total shock, and if you don’t have a support group it can be really hard to push through. Transition programs on campus gave me the opportunity to build an entire support group that I lean on to this day.
My mentors gave me confidence in that, regardless of my failures or successes, I had people to push me up and push me forward.
Aqeel Anas, 2nd Year
Mentorship has been such a pivotal part of my life, and it continues to help me grow every day. In high school, and in university, mentorship has been one of the greatest keys to my success as a student; not only in school, but outside the classroom as well. It has provided me with countless opportunities, and has introduced me to some of the most vibrant and interesting people I have ever met.
Being able to receive support and encouragement from friends and mentors who want me to succeed allows me to tread the waters outside my comfort zone, and expand my horizons.
