This is one of a series of case studies, attempting to give a human feel to the positive impact the work of the Mullany Fund is having.
This particular story is about Felicity*, who signed up to be mentored by our eMentoring project. It is presented in her words:
"When I first started the Mullany e-mentoring program, I was asked what career path I wished to pursue. I had no idea. I knew I wanted to work in science, but didn’t know what kind or how to go about deciding.
"After 4 weeks of speaking to my mentor, I was giving my options for my GCSE’s next year. I was able to fill out my forms with no second thoughts or doubts.
"My mentor has also given me advice on revision techniques, time management, and boosting my confidence. I am now more confident and my grades have risen due to how I manage my time and revise.
"I am glad to say that I am now ambitious about becoming a biochemist and that I decided on this career path with the help of a great mentor. I am incredibly thankful for the work my mentor has done with me and I am finding my new mentor to be just as useful.
"I look forward to all of the great advice I am to receive in the future. I would also be extremely keen on continuing with the e-mentoring program after this 9 week period is over."
