Motivation

Walter believes we all have a story to tell of our journey as a student to becoming a career professional, but most important to him is to narrow the gap between what you actually study at school and how it translates to real life. He wants to help a mentee, see how real-life process mirrors growth. When starting as student, the focus usually is on general studies and then narrows out towards senior/graduating years on specialized courses or thesis. He wants to help you get a broader view of things.
