I was inspired to become a SAW mentor when I realized the huge impact the first mentor I ever worked with had on me. She first supported me intellectually, and later on emotionally when I was having trouble adjusting to college life. My favorite part of being a SAW mentor is having the opportunity to connect with other students on an academic level and beyond. I believe the mission of the SAW Center truly embodies what being a member of the Mount Holyoke community is all about; helping each other out and cheering one another along no matter who that person is or where they come from.
