What makes you a good mentor?

My interest in politics and public service most decidedly started at Carleton, during which time I was a member of both the CUSA and RRRA executives. From the academic programs, to clubs and societies, student government, and the greater Ottawa network I formed during my time at Carleton University, my career path was undoubtedly altered in a way that continues to benefit me to this day. It would be a pleasure support current students as they develop the networks that will foster their advancement in the same way.
