Bird & Bird

I believe that in the mentor-mentee relationship both sides are mutually developing. As a mentor I would like to support the students exploring the value of their power and creativity and help them realize that with the right tools and competencies they can succeed.

Impact Hub

Being an entrepreneur is quite challenging, however if you are open-minded and pay attention you can learn a lot and lead your business to directions you’ve never thought before. I’ve experienced this and the fact that as a uSchool mentor I can share it with these curious minds, it is a true privilege.
