This scheme has been really helpful to me, especially during the first few weeks when I was just settling in and trying to know how everything worked. It was a relief to have someone who has already been through this. Ariela has been here 24/7 to support me with any issues I have regarding school or anything in particular, and it has been of great help.
I would have probably been really lost without this scheme to be honest. I really like how she organises meetings and catch-ups on zoom, this is also incredibly helpful, especially due to the current situation and how we cannot meet a lot of people, it just makes everything easier.
Overall, I just wanted to say that my mentor is great! I might even consider to be a Buddy next year!
