What makes you a good mentor?

I believe we need strong, skilled and passionate journalists in Canada who can tell compelling stories to help Canadians understand the important issues of the day and if I can help someone starting out in the business to get to where they want to be, I'd really like to do that. I also believe in sharing knowledge and skills whenever possible and that building community is important in the professional sphere. I was helped by mentors, and still am so I understand the value of having someone pass down what they've learned to the next crop of young people.
