Through my personal experience I hope to help the future mentee prepare for her or his transition into professional life and assist in navigating successfully through the Danish labour market. A mentee should be curious, passionate and active to get the most out of this experience.

At the same time, mentoring will be a new experience for me with the aim of developing my personal leadership skills.
