What people say about this event

I am a product of mentorship and have seen first hand the benefits it has had on my professional development. The reason that stood out for me is the clarity that is provided on how to pursue a profession. I believe as a student I feared what I didn’t understand and this could have been a big deterrent to pursuing a profession.
