What do you think is the role of a mentor? A mentor is one who inspires, motivates and guides their mentee in most areas of life. She is like a pillar & one who gives you a boost when needed. A wise person sometimes saying "Don't stop" 

Why do you want to be a GirlEng mentor? The reason is simply because I find joy in being of assistance to others, not just academically but in aspects of life where I'm required to. I have a dream of having a business that will branch off with a scholarship or bursary scheme in years to come. Helping those students not only with furthering their education but grooming them in all areas of life by hosting vibrant workshops. This would require me to be able to motivate and inspire each one of them. There are many hardships that I have faced from junior school until university (currently and before) and I can relate to most people's situations and trials, although each one is unique, I can still empathize.  

Words to live by: I am wonderfully and fearfully made and indeed I am a future leader
