I had no idea what to expect, but after the first one-on-one session with Michelle, I knew she was the right mentor for me. She's a true professional with a keen ear. She is a warm, encouraging, and patient teacher. I only wish we had more time together on the mentorship programme. However, I would recommend her to anyone who is getting started with product development because she will definitely help you find structure and give you good advice for any roadblocks in your path.

Michelle is a thoughtful and responsible mentor. Within a month, she helped me to get to a better spot with my project. I had an actionable plan after every session with her, and Michelle helped to find the gaps I had and advised me on how to circumvent my blockers.

I had an excellent first one-off session with Michelle and plan to meet with her again. She is a very warm, encouraging mentor, and would recommend her to anyone preparing for an upcoming interview or for general mentorship.
