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 went into my first session not quite knowing what I even wanted to get out of it, but Michelle took everything I put out and gave it structure and direction. I followed up with an insightful portfolio review with so many great actions I could take on immediately. I've been in the industry almost a decade and haven't gotten feedback as constructive as Michelle's. 10/10 Would recommend!
