Why did you participate in the MSc Mentor Program?
For me, the mentor program offers a great opportunity to get a glimpse of the professional working life in Sweden. Having had sessions with my mentor has given me the opportunity to reflect on upcoming decisions and has propelled me continue growing both personally and professionally. I have also been able to expand my network in Sweden which I find very necessary.
Has the program met your expectations? Why?
My expectations have certainly been exceeded, since I learned a lot about both the Swedish working culture but also about myself thanks to Vivian.
Have you developed and/or improved any personal skills during the program?
I learned the importance of summarizing my thoughts before our sessions. This allowed us to maximize the time we spent together during the session and it also enabled us to focus on topics and questions that I really needed to think more about.
Do not miss the opportunities given by the mentor program, you can definitely benefit a lot from it!
