What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about mentoring. Providing advice and support can help deaf and hard-of-hearing people to find the right path in work, study and life. I want to encourage deaf and hard-of-hearing people to be motivated, to become skilled and to take steps everyday that will build confidence and help them to be successful in life.

What skills, experience, strengths or knowledge can you offer someone as their mentor?

I am happy to share my knowledge and experience, and for us to help each other. I will support your skills to become better at whatever it is you want to achieve.

Best advice you would give or have been given:

Don’t give up, and follow your dreams!

Most important life lessons learned:

Learning a new thing every day from a person you respect will help you a lot. You will be improving your skills and attitude. No one can stop you from doing that. You can do anything, and you will be proud of who you are.
