A Letter To A Mentor….

I met Brigitte 5 years ago, and she has been the most inspiring mentor. She’s seen my successes, she’s seen my failures, and she’s stuck beside me through it all. She is the person who I look up to and want to be just like. Independent. Head strong. Ambitious. Unafraid to tackle challenges. Fearless. The adjectives which can describe her are endless. I’m so lucky and blessed to have been able to meet her five years ago at the career expo.
