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:
I had no idea
“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.
Advice with GCSE options
“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 grades have risen
“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.
Keen to continue
“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.”
