I want to thank you for giving me advice, believing in me, and just being you. Coming into college, I was shy but motivated to learn and grow. I've changed a lot these past two years and I have you to thank for that.
You taught me to go after what I want. I set goals and accomplished them. This was all because I knew how hard you worked and I looked up to you. I strove to be like you and get my name out there. Thank you for being a great role model.
You introduced me to new organizations and people. Through you, I started my first internship, found meetups to attend, and met some pretty inspiring people. Thinking about how much I would have missed out on if I hadn't been paired up with you is why I am so thankful I did get you as a mentor.
You gave the best advice. Whether this advice was professional or personal, I valued it. I took it into my other internships and school-life. Thank you for teaching me how to be confident in my field.
The best part is you believed in me. Like I said, I'm a completely different person than I was coming into college and even a year ago. You saw something in me and gave me opportunities to learn and network.
So I thank you for taking your time to mentor me,
