January is “National Mentoring Month,” and at Girls Write Now we see the extraordinary impact our mentors have on their mentees’ lives.
“My mentor is not only a coach to me, but a friend as well. I never thought I’d be able to collaborate with someone so gifted and experienced.”
— Winkie Ma, Mentee
As we begin 2017, Mentee Alum Sharon Young reminds us to “Stop and Smell the Roses” in her multimedia piece of the same name.
Also, please share your stories about your mentor. On Thursday, January 19th, it’s “Thank Your Mentor Day,” and we are keeping a running list of all the mentors who are changing lives. Send us your stories at firstname.lastname@example.org. Read more here.
Friend, thank you for your support, and Happy 2017!
