When evaluating whether a mentor would be a good match for your student keep in mind that the greatest leading indicator of success is how well a mentor and their mentee get along.
Questions to ask yourself:
- Would the student find this person inspiring?
- Do they share any interests, hobbies, or lived experiences?

WHY THIS MATTERS:
Our mentorship sessions happen virtually over Zoom. It’s important to get a sense of how someone’s personality can come through on a video call. The best way to ensure your student is excited about learning is to have someone on the other side that they look forward to talking to.
GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT (SO FAR)
I have gotten the fantastic opportunity to work in the Stanford Robotics Lab – one of the leading robotics labs in the world! As the only undergraduate in the lab, I am constantly being pushed to rapidly learn new skills and implement ideas with precision. Over the past 8 months I have spent in the lab, I have learned more than I ever thought possible; I have built a camera that is used by an underwater robot that explored the depths of the Mediterranean Sea, I have designed components on new cutting-edge robotic arms, and so much more.
