Leigh on mentorship

I am excited to be a Mentorship EDGE mentor because I wish I had someone to connect with on this level when I was an undergraduate. As a student, you meet professionals at events and maybe have coffee or an office tour or lunch, but there just isn’t always the opportunity to create a mentorship relationship. This program gives the perfect opportunity to connect with the purpose of mentorship! I am very open to sharing my experience in this industry and want to create a safe space for students to ask questions!
