What makes you a good mentor?

I want to give back to the Carleton community and help younger people find their passion. I want to inspire younger people in Canada to follow a career path in international affairs, foreign policy, diplomacy, international development and other related topics, because I believe Canada has an important role to play globally and we need inspired and passionate young minds to take up the reigns and continue fighting for our values both at home and abroad.
