"I came to mentor cruise looking for someone to help me get comfortable with coding again as I planned to return to university for a Masters. I met Stephen and we have worked together for a period of four months. In terms of self development? Probably the best decision I’ve made in 2020. Stephen is charismatic, intelligent (emphasis on this word), a brilliant teacher and someone who absolutely enjoys what he does - it’s hard not to get carried away by his vibrant personality - which is probably why I stayed on for four months! I’ve learnt so much from him in this short space of time and look forward to working with him on future projects. I’ve chosen to end my mentorship after four months as I have now started my masters and won’t have as much time, besides it would be selfish to hold a spot when there are other mentees who could benefit from it as well! Thank you, Stephen :) P.S. Ask him about his Rubik’s cube or can of Pringles!"
