Students and mentors alike were excited to see each other.
“I have so much to tell [my mentor]. I can’t wait to see her because she knows what I was going through last year…but it’s getting better!”
Mentors and students expressed how much they missed each other and some even wrote letters over the summer. It’s so important to understand how vital mentoring can be when two people meet in-person.
