Peter still remembers his transition from a theoretical environment to the workplace, and that it can leave many students with a lot of different questions. In this regard, Peter believes that he is able to offer some advice. For him, just being able to help someone is rewarding in itself, and he is sure that the program will also help him develop his leadership skills. Being a generalist himself, Peter would probably be able to help a mentee the best if they also have the wish of becoming one.
