Achieving goals through confidence

Achieving goals through confidence

“The mentor training was an enriching experience. It was practical rather than purely theoretical, and all participants could learn from each other. My desire to become a mentor stems from two reasons. Two years ago, I started at a university in Italy and dropped out after four months because I felt insecure about my ability to pass any exam. There was no mentor who could explain to me that the first months at the university can be overwhelming and hard. I believe that such a person could have changed everything. So I want to transmit confidence to prevent anyone from feeling that he does not have what it takes to pursue an academic career. Secondly, I want to become a professor or a human resources specialist and guide people in acquiring confidence. So for me, this mentor programme is an enriching experience for personal and professional reasons. I cannot express my gratitude to RSM for giving its students such opportunities and care. I hope that at the end of the mentor programme, all my mentees will have the confidence needed to face the challenging world of university and to enjoy their new life.”
