||What Does Being a Mentor Mean to You?
| Lucas Hrabovsky
|| Hello All,
There are many opinions on what being a Mentor really means. Most share the opinion that being a Mentor means that you want to make a difference in other peoples' lives. Since we already have such a diverse group here I am curious to hear what each of you think. Why do you want to be a mentor? What are the benefits that you receive from being a mentor? What are the challenges you face in acting as a Mentor?
To me, the greatest benfit of being a Mentor is knowing that I have made a difference in someone's life. That is a greater benefit than any type of compensation. Watching someone grow and knowing that you were a cause of it is very fulfilling to me.
The challenges I face in being a Mentor are feeling as if I could help my mentee more and trying to balance my schedule so that I can give him/her the time that they deserve. Being a Mentor, there is a very special bond that occurs between my Mentees and I. And at times it can be trying, but when my Mentees succeed, it makes it all worth it.
Look forward to hearing all your thoughts.
