I am grateful and blessed to be a mentee in the Mentorship Program. My mentor, Cathy Harrison, has provided me with the tools for networking success and created a welcoming environment since our initial meeting. She wears two hats in our relationship鈥攁s a trusted friend and academic mentor, and she does an amazing job distinguishing between them. Under her guidance, I have grown as a person and academically. Cathy has equipped me to become the successful woman I aspire to be. I thank Chotsani for pairing me with her; you have changed my life forever.
