Peer Mentor

Program & Year:

Second year Communication and Media Studies

Why I’m a mentor:

It is such an empowering experience to be part of a mentoring relationship with other students where you can offer your advice and learn from their experiences. Trying to make a positive impact on some of my peers’ university life, and at the same time improve my leadership, social and organizational skills is absolutely something that deserves my time and energy.

Something I wished I knew in my first year… 

It is nice to know some tips about university life and get some advice from other students. However, sometimes doing things in your own way and making your own decisions like taking a course that others might run away from could be more rewarding.
