Seek out mentorship:
As a community of underrepresented minorities in science, we need to participate as both mentors and mentees. Our collective knowledge is a strength and our experiences can lead the next generation of STEM professionals.
The value of the mentor/mentee relationship continues to be made clear to me each and every day. I know that I wouldn’t be in the position I am today if it weren’t for the impact and guidance of my mentor. It’s up to you, however, to ask and take advantage of what mentors can offer. mentorship is a two-way street. You have to deliver tremendous value to your mentor as well, and that often means working longer and harder than those around you.
My father is my mentor. He is like a person who always give respect to everyone and the same thing he taught us.He is very honest, polite and humble. He always supports me in my studies. He has trust on me so that he always treat me and my sisters like a son.
My elder sister is also my mentor because she is not only my sister but also a very sincere friend and teacher. He always helps me in every decision because I always ask her before taking any decision. She always gives me pieces of advice and helps me in my education financially and in every aspect.
I strongly believed that humility and courage are the most important things in order to learn from others.Because to learn something we should be very humble with others and also have courage to ask for help.
I firmly believe that mentorship is the best path to career success, hands down. The benefits that you can gain from a good mentor relationship can outweigh grad school, natural ability, and even dumb luck. The key is to have the foresight and humility to ask to be mentored. If you start there, you’ll find that there are plenty of accelerators in your life who can add value. More importantly, you can take it upon yourself to add tremendous value for them. In doing so, you’ll ensure that you get the most out of the mentor relationship and find success in your life and career.
