Zhe on mentorship

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill

I'm very excited to connect with students on a broad range of topics and facilitate a mutual discussion on finding a path uniquely powerful to you. I see mentoring as less about one-sided sharing, and more about discovering together, in a collaborative and open-minded manner. Think like a generalist, and perform like a specialist.
