What makes you a good mentor?

I believe mentoring is a great way for two people to grow both personally and professionally. Having been a mentor with the Science Student Success Centre at Carleton Univerisity in the past, I know how rewarding mentoring can be for everyone involved. Further, being a fairly recent graduate myself, I am eager to share the knowledge and experience I have gained, as well as the advice I was given not to long ago. I am very motivated and enthusiastic about life in general, and I hope to be able to pass some of this energy off to a like-minded individual!
