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?

Katie Fong (she/her) is a recent Stanford University graduate in Art History and Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity. At Stanford, she received the J. E. Wallace Sterling Award for Scholastic Achievement as one of the top 25 graduating seniors in Stanford’s School of Humanities and Sciences.

Katie is currently pursuing her MA in Art History at NYU's Institute of Fine Arts. She has previously worked in curatorial, collections, and engagement roles at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Cantor Arts Center, Stanford; and the National Palace Museum, Taipei, Taiwan. Most recently, she held a development role at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York, where she supported residencies for global artists and curators and the inaugural cohort of the Vision Fund, dedicated solely to contemporary BIPOC artists. Katie is passionate about diversity and equity in the art world, and sees art curation, education, and praxis as tools towards our collective liberation. Her art history writing serves as an art form in itself— a poetic space for exploring the entanglements of identity, personal and collective history, and diaspora. In high school, Katie was a finalist in the International Public Policy Forum, a Varsity swimmer, an Oral Interpreter, and a musical theater actress. In addition to working as an ambassador for the National Palace Museum back home in Taipei, she also mentored new youth docents, teaching them Chinese art history and public-speaking. When she is not haunting art museums and galleries, Katie enjoys painting, singing, traveling the world, and eating delicious food.
