❝I mentioned earlier that I mentor several students and young professionals. In this post, I shared a screenshot from one of my mentees who had gone dormant while handling some personal life issues. As he reflected on some of our previous conversations, he took my advice, which resulted in him earning a job in a field he loves.❞
