A mentor is an individual who assists and guides another’s development. Their role entails guidance that is not done for personal gain or praise to increase one’s own reputation. A mentor can act as a role model, guide, tutor, coach, or confidante. Mentors enrich lives by sharing their valuable experiences, by listening and giving sound advice, and through their own life examples.
According to the Cambridge English Dictionary, the word ‘mentee’ is described as “a person who is helped by a mentor (a person who gives a younger or less experienced person help and advice over a period of time)”. We hope you don’t mind us using this term.
