Find a Mentor

Why?

The greatest feats are never accomplished alone. It's when you work with others, the creativity stimulates. Mentors are essential in your journey. They have experienced more, learned more and can guide you through similar struggles they have faced. Whether having one just to talk to, or to reach out to in times of need, having someone to listen is crucial.

How?

There are many ways to have mentors. There are those that are given to you and those that you chose.

  1. Those that are given: These would be people like your advisors, guidance counselors, parents and teachers. They are in professions of care, eduation, or social work, so they are people to talk to when you need career advice or personal advice.
  2. Those that you chose: We all admire people. People who go above and beyond their lifetimes to achieve something great. Research into interests that fuel your passion and find people who have excelled in those fields. Read about their lives and what they went through to accomplish their tasks.
