How My Mentor Helped Me Realize My True Potential
There are certain things that can only be learned through experience. The benefit of having a mentor is one of the best examples. As cliché as it may sound, my experience as a mentee was a pivotal moment in my life. For the first time, I had someone not telling me what to do but helping me look at my options and finding an answer.
Helping my mentor understand me
Through the Pearson Scholarship for Higher Education, I met my mentor, Lindsey Erlick. She wasn’t this pushy social butterfly who I had envisioned. She was a very understanding person. Instead of only talking about her experiences, she wanted to understand why I looked at things the way I did. Helping my mentor understand my perspective helped me better understand myself. This mentorship experience proved to me there is so much about me I never knew.
