In our Mentees' words

“My mentor was great at listening to me, I felt like she did try to hear what I was saying. I feel she pushed me to try new things I was nervous about which is something I really needed, it helped me gain confidence massively.”

“I got the role that I was really interested in and I feel that this happened mostly due to the confidence that I finally obtained during the program. Rise happened to me in the best possible time of my life.”

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that is about to positively impact and change your life, professionally and beyond. Grab on with both hands and make the absolute most of it. Everyone is here for you (and I do mean EVERYONE!), ready to champion you to success.”
