What our mentees say

 

Tanya was totally awesome! She prepared a plan for our meetings, she taught me a lot of new ways of thinking, she supported me and encouraged me to take new and frightening actions. I had homework every meeting which worked very well. She was very clear with her feedback on what I've done and wasn't afraid to be honest with me when it wasn't right. She was always available when I needed her. I couldn't imagine a better mentor for me, the match was just splendid and I feel like she helped to put me on a totally new way in my career.

- Eilat Ben-Eliyahu, Freelance Filmmaker

It was a great experience. We got along with Andrea. She is really energetic and always willing to help/advise me. Our regular meetings helped me to realize how I am moving forward. Without her I would just go on and did not realize my past results and small wins. -  Michaela Kývalová, Facebook PPC Specialist

I am glad being a part of this initiative. You made a perfect match and even though we both come from different backgrounds, we were able to find common goals and Jana is great leader and mentor as well. I have so much to learn from her and I truly appreciate that she is willing to share her best knowledge and experience with me. I was my pleasure to meet her. Many thanks for all your hard work.

- Markéta Svobodová, TA Operations Specialist at Red Hat
