My first year
Going into university for the first time was challenging and scary yet exciting, all on its own. Struggling with new situations, structure and community made the mentoring program such a vital safety net and building bridge in becoming my own person and making a name for myself. Although I went into university with outside friends on the other side of campus, the program gave me a mentor that helped me make and keep friends in my degree and yet support me with regular conversations, meetings and information. I’ve been a part of programs like this before and nothing compares to the support, care and thrive for my success, it offers.
