Five Reasons To Become a Wedu Mentor in 2016

Still looking for a New Year’s Resolution? Let our Wedu Mentors inspire you to add this on your list!

DEVELOP YOUR LEADERSHIP SKILLS

“Mentoring is an essential part of any developing leader. After many years of having mentors and mentoring others I firmly believe that Wedu offers a great opportunity to connect with up and coming leaders of developing nations particularly in healthcare.”

Ken Blaikie, Australia

CHALLENGE YOURSELF AND OTHERS

“The most inspirational ladies in my life haven’t been the ones to hold my hand and tell me ‘everything is alright,’ but the ones who show empathy or strength through adversity, who challenged me when I was not pushing myself to my full potential, and those who’ve asked ‘are you really going to give up now?’ I believe it is in those spaces on uncertainty that creativity can grow. It is in these spaces that women can flourish.”

Nicole Dulieu, Cambodia

GIVE BACK GLOBALLY

“A mentor is a kindred spirit to a young leader […] a person with like-minded passion, spirit and commitment to making the world a better, more beautiful place.”

Danielle van de Kemenade, Germany

MAKE AN IMPACT

“I believe the role of a mentor is a substantial one, that goes above and beyond the role of supporting someone in their career development. Mentors offer advice that impacts on both the personal and professional side, and information that can shape and impact upon a persons actions, feelings, behaviors and outlook.”

Kate Jackson, United Kingdom

CHASE YOUR GOALS

“Through supporting her to achieve her goals, I have also learned about the importance of having support networks to maintain self-esteem and the drive to keep doing what our hearts tell us we must. Watching her continuously strive for her goals, in the face of numerous and recurring challenges, has reminded me how it crucial it is that I, too, keep on working to make the changes that I want to see in the world.”
