Spotlights on Success!
“Mentoring is extremely important. It is well know that in business, medical, and any industry, having multiple mentors is the key to success. I have been blessed with terrific mentors, both from StudentMentor.org and off, and I find them to be sounding boards for life and career decisions.”
“My mentors, Jay and Sam, were extremely helpful and supportive. They provide deep insight into my business, and direct me towards the right path if they are uncertain of answers.”
“This is an amazing opportunity and the possibilities are endless.”
My two life blows came so close together that they nearly crushed me and I felt very lost for awhile. However, I began working with Monica, my mentor. With her help and encouragement, I have quickly regained confidence in myself and in my choices.
I couldnt believe that my mentor was willing to put so much time and effort into helping a student like me. I have been overwhelmed by the willingness of my mentors and hope to be a mentor to students like me after reaching my goals.

My mentor, Allyson, has been the biggest blessing. Allyson has gone above and beyond. There was no other place where I could get that. Allyson helped me draw my own game board instead of just rolling the dice.
I was excited about my mentor because he classified himself as an Entrepreneur and I believe in the same for myself. I would highly recommend StudentMentor.org to others!

Dr. Cecily Wang
I am a trauma/acute care/general surgeon. I work as a surgeon in the U.S. 6 months a year, and do medical relief work and anti-human trafficking work overseas the other 6 months. Working with my mentees has been a lot of fun and brings (even more) variety into my life.
Helping my mentees is the best feeling in the world and just to know that my words can affect someones life is such a touching experience for me to be rewarded with.
Meeting a new mentee is like opening a surprise package. Finding out what theyve just done or are planning to do is like a new chapter in a book. And its so easy.
The interaction is fun and joyful, and the students very appreciative of the time and help. It gives me hope in our next generation.
I would definitely recommend StudentMentor.org to other experienced professionals, who have the time and desire to volunteer in assisting students.
“I have enjoyed sharing some of the lessons I learned from my attempts to get in to advertising in college and ideas I have for building a portfolio. I feel like our discussions have been very productive and I have really enjoyed it. I would absolutely recommend StudentMentor.org to others!”
“It has been a journey for both me and the mentee as I have gone back through my career to discuss some of the roles that were the most satisfying for me, as well as some positions that didnt work out for one reason or another.”
When I first learned of StudentMentor.org, I tended to think of mentoring as a mostly one-way transaction with most of the benefits being given to the protégé or mentee. Two months of mentoring has greatly changed that perspective. I have already gained valuable insights from my mentoring experience.
I encourage my mentees to use me to their full advantage! Ask as many questions, and never feel intrusive. This is such a rewarding program, helping others around the nation- I couldnt ask for much more!
I am a 30 year veteran of Silicon Valley with a background in leading teams, and hardware/software development. StudentMentor.org attracted me through both the mission and its innovative approach.
“StudentMentor.org makes it easy for me to help other students who are in the same position I was once in while I continue pursuing my goals. What a perfect idea, and so easy to use!”
“I wholeheartedly recommend StudentMentor.org to other professionals as it is so important to give back to the professional community, and keep in touch with aspiring leaders.”
“This has been great for me as well, as it has really helped to evaluate my priorities for what I would like to accomplish in my career. StudentMentor.org is a great way to easily connect with and help students.”
The experience and feeling that you get from working with the students is such a great feeling. You feel a great deal of satisfaction placing someone on the right track.
I would definitely recommend others to use StudentMentor.org, it is convenient and rewarding. Its an indescribable feeling to help other people.
“I believe that to help others discover what they want out of life will not only bring them, but also myself happiness. I believe that when something good develops, everyone will benefit, and that is why I would recommend StudentMentor.org to others.”
“My experience with StudentMentor.org has been an excellent experience! I would certainly suggest StudentMentor.org to anyone who has the need to utilize the information!’
Dr. Priya Gaiha
My name is Priya Gaiha and I am a general surgeon. I understand how difficult the road can be to achieve your dreams. The most important people in my life, outside of my family, were and still are my mentors. To be able to share your experiences and guide those on their journey to their goal is extremely rewarding.
This experience has allowed me to tap into my past, explore my experiences, and share with others considerations that may not be as apparent to them at an early stage of their career. It has helped me continue to evaluate my own goals, remind me the learning process never ends, and I have as much to learn as I do to teach.
This has been a great first mentoring experience for me and it is refreshing to see a eager young student just ready to go! The mentorship has been a tremendous learning opportunity for me to grow and mature as someone who can advise and mentor others, an essential skill for later in ones career.
I wholeheartedly recommend StudentMentor.org to anyone who has a desire to share ideas, goals, experiences and opportunities for the possible betterment of students lives.
This experience has been enlightening to me and also puts my knowledge to the test. I really enjoy mentoring! I would surely recommend others getting involved with StudentMentor.org. It is listed on my company website, my LinkedIn profile and I also share the information with companies I consult with!
“The mentoring experience has proved very fulfilling for me. StudentMentor.org pairs mentors and mentees in a way that works to both ?parties’ benefit, and I think it’s a great organization that everyone ?should take advantage of.”
