What makes you a good mentor?

I had a mentor my first year of university and it really changed my experience at Carleton. I was a mentor the following years and I absolutely loved it. Being there for someone is something that I am very passionate about. I know that navigating through career or even just a new city can be tough, but having someone to share the experience with can seem a little less intimidating.

About Eleonora Romaniello

My name is Eleonora and I am originally from Rome, Italy. I came to Carleton University to pursue a Bachelor of Commerce with a concentration in Marketing. I was very involved on campus between being a TA, an international student mentor and the marketing manager for Sprott Student Investment Fund.

After my degree I moved to Montreal to start my career at British American Tobacco as a sales representative. After less than a year, I was promoted to Manager, Customer Activation, which was a position in between sales and marketing. In 2021, I switch industry and became the Manager of Innovation at Saputo, where I create new products for the Canadian market.

In my free time I love baking, travelling and spending time with friends.
