Peer Mentor

Program & Year:

Second year Bachelor of Global and International Studies with a specialization in Latin American and Caribbean Studies

As an international student, the first couple of weeks at Carleton were rough. I missed home constantly and generally felt out of step and anxious. I had the privilege of having an amazing mentor who helped me a lot through this experience and I want to lend that same level of support to someone else who may need it.
