What makes you a good mentor?

Being a Carleton grad, and having had the opportunity to study, work and grow in Ottawa, I owe much of my success to my past and current mentors. Their ability to steer me to the right path with years of experience is truly invaluable. I am now in a position, where I have had the privilege to work, learn and grow in my career. I enjoy meeting people, and would love to share my experiences with fellow students to help them understand the various opportunities that are available in Ottawa.
