In order to create an impact and innovate, you need to be well-informed.
Why do you think mentorship is important in career development?
Because sometimes you want to be understood. We all have our unique experiences but sometimes it’s easier to relate to certain people due to similarity. I did not have my life figured out for the longest time, and what I lacked the most was a sense of relatability. I wanted to not feel weird for having different career goals and I believe this is where the role of a mentorship really comes in. While I lacked mentorship when I started out, I feel grateful to have found mentors over the past year that have really helped me learn and grow. To all the individuals reading this, you’re not alone in wanting a career change, you’re not too late to be pursuing something different and you’re not weird for thinking differently. There are people out there who have had similar experiences and my advice to you is: don’t be shy and start those conversations!
