"I think I have grown in the way of developing new skills. I have learnt time management, crisis management and how to fit into a team with all its responsibilities and commitments. I have also grown in confidence when speaking to new people, and have become much better at facilitating group discussions and activities. Being a mentor has also given me a wonderful feeling of self-worth and fulfillment. Helping the first years is very gratifying and they are always very appreciative. I have formed close relationships with a number of them, and this in turn has increased my own social capital. I have made peace with the fact that not all my mentees need me equally, making myself available as they require. I feel that as the year progresses I will continue to increase the new skills I have learnt as well as develop more new ones. I thoroughly enjoy being a mentor and am eager to continue holding sessions and making sure that my mentees are flourishing."
