Antara: Helping my mentees grow

My mum was the first person I told when I received the scholarship as she is my role model and taught me to always help others and volunteer with a lot of disadvantaged groups.

Helping my mentees grow into confident individuals through the Access Monash Mentoring Program has been my highlight. Furthermore, mentoring international students has been another achievement as I've watched them gain a lot of confidence, public speaking skills and accelerate in academics.
