“I spent time to understand what drives my mentee and what he sees as his purpose in choosing architecture. I encouraged him to really interrogate his ambitions and use his networks to broaden his vision for the future.”
- Richard, mentor

“I felt extremely supported and thoroughly enjoyed all our discussions, as well as getting to share a passion for the built environment while gaining valuable feedback and advice. I cannot recommend the program enough to students worrying about what happens after graduation - after talking to my mentor I felt ready!”
- Natalie - mentee
