"Don't raise your voice, improve your argument."



Why do you want to be a mentor?

Many smart and respected people have given me amazing opportunities throughout my career. They have put trust in me and supported me to be the best version of myself. It is only right that I now focus on doing the same for others when it comes to their careers. I believe the collective mind is better than just one and from my own experience, bouncing ideas around with others only ever results in better outcomes.
