Mentoring Story

"My Tele-mentor is one in a million. I thought I would find it hard opening up to a stranger about my situation, which I never thought I would find myself in. She helped me by listening, offering advice, providing contacts and offering support. She has made me laugh, but more importantly helped me make sense of my situation, and to approach it pragmatically. I am in a better place than I have been in years, mostly because I chat through and make sense of what's happening with my mentor's help and advice. I can't thank her and ROC enough for helping me through this difficult time and I am pleased to say that I may just have found a friend for life. Thank you!"
