A big thank you for giving me this opportunity to contribute to our posterity. It was a rewarding experience being able to help the younger generation navigate their future pathways. At the same time, I was truly humbled by their speed and wit.
I was impressed by my mentee’s industrious nature in seeking for new experiences, in embracing and learning from others. She took all feedback very seriously. It is hoped that the mentoring has helped equip her with a clearer direction for her career and ensuing work-life as a whole.
As one gives, one receives. Through this process, it has further enhanced my understanding of the value of mentoring graduating students. It has also heightened my appreciation of today’s youth. To see their agility and ability to adapt quickly which is increasingly so important as change is now very much a constant.
I respectfully recommend future mentors to take some time to understand our mentees and their aspirations. Our support and insights can assist them make important decisions that may help shape their lives and what lies ahead.
