How long have you been an active member of DonCARES?

Since September 2017 (Officially)

What advice do you have for new mentors?

Put in the best effort you can with your mentee, it is not easy work. There will be ups and downs with your mentor, but persistence is key.

What do you like most about DonCARES?

I like interacting with all of the young minds at the U School. Not just my mentor but with those around him.

What is your proudest moment at DonCARES?

Offering advice and conversing with students about the importance of a financial future and stimulating their minds to invest sooner rather than later.

What has being in a mentoring relationship taught you about yourself?

I've learned that being in a mentoring relationship is something that has to be dealt with carefully. Not as in walking on eggshells so to speak, but showing your mentee that you care for them and want them to do well. So, in other words, it showed me how to transfer my compassion and carefulness to another person.
