I want to use technology in a way that revolutionizes the way mentees and mentors interact. Mentorch makes that interaction fun, easy and meaningful. Mentorship has had a huge impact in my life. I was able to receive guidance and knowledge at critical points that led me to success. Without that knowledge I would have failed many more times before I finally succeeded.
Mentorch allows people to meet mentors and mentees, keep in touch and continue to cultivate important relationships and at the very least have access to their mentors at the tips of their fingers whenever they need them. Think of the good in the world we could create if everyone sought out a mentor or took the time to mentor just one person... Humans have been passing the torch of knowledge since the beginning of our ability to communicate, but it has not been done quite like this before.
Throughout my life, there have been many times where I needed someone to turn to for guidance. I have been fortunate to have special people around. These wonderfully talented people became my life mentors. Each gave unselfishly of their time and experience to help me along my life's journey. Instead of simply solving the problem for me, they taught me how to solve problems for myself using their own experiences as teaching tools.
For over 20 years, I have worked as mentor to people across the country. I can say that there is not a more rewarding experience than helping others grow personally and professionally. I discovered that the greatest joy in life comes not in personal gain, rather it comes in witnessing the success of others.
Wishing you the best on your Mentorch journey,
I joined Mentorch to be able to help build a community that allows everyone to find great mentors, who can shape and influence their lives and challenge them to be the best version of themselves!
Throughout my life I have had great mentors who guided me and made things a lot easier than they would have been if I had to figure everything out on my own. In 2013 I moved to the United States from Germany, where I was born and raised and had a wonderful support network. I started my journey in the United States and a new life with my husband but everything felt foreign to me. I was very blessed to be welcomed with open arms by my new family here and to meet great friends in our Military community.
Over the past two years I developed a network of amazing mentors and what was once foreign to me became exciting with the help of a mentor by my side. No matter where I live, whether it is Germany or here in the US, I take great comfort in knowing I can seek knowledge from my mentors and return the favor when the time comes to pass it on to the next generation.
Growing up, I have always had super high ambitions. Whether it was to get my black belt in karate, become an Eagle Scout, become a Chief Petty Officer in the Naval Sea Cadets, or to get into the Naval Academy, I quickly realized that none of these were possible without the help and guidance of people around me.
Even as an adult, pursuing goals in my career and my hobbies, having a mentor to help me achieve those goals is invaluable. Just as I have been a "mentee" my entire life, I want to be able to give back to the world and share my experiences with other people and be the mentor they need to achieve their goals. I want to help people seeking mentorship to connect with those who have the desire to inspire.
I joined the Mentorch team because of the help and guidance I received from the mentors I have been lucky to have. Finding good mentors can be difficult, but Mentorch allows you to connect with Mentors that you otherwise may not have been able to find.
Working as a Mentor is close to my heart and by working as part of the Mentorch team I am able to help others connect and create great Mentor/Mentee friendships.
