What do you think is the role of a mentor:  To guide, motivate, support and be a role model to the mentees more like a big sister.

Why do you want to be a GirlEng mentor: I enjoy helping others especially females by uplifting each other so we can be smart successful woman. Also to be able to share the experience I had at UKZN whilst studying engineering a field dominated by males, the challenges you face and how I overcame them. I also feel as a female we need to have a concrete support structure and help each other more than looking down on each other.

Words to live by: Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
