What makes you a good mentor?

The guidance and support of mentors have been such an invaluable resource in my personal and professional growth and I hope to pay it forward by sharing what I’ve learned with others. As a young professional, it makes all the difference to have someone to bounce ideas off of, go to for advice or know someone is there to listen and relate.
