New Mentor…Stephanie Yang

New Mentor…Stephanie Yang

I am the oldest of three. I am also one of the oldest in my line of cousins. I actually like being the oldest child, but one of the biggest drawbacks is not having anyone to look up to. My younger siblings consider me their mentor at times, just as my younger cousins consider my siblings as their mentors at times. Being the first in line, I didn’t have anyone to personally mentor me.

Maybe it was because I had never considered anyone a mentor before, but it was difficult for me to call anyone a mentor. I looked at them as supervisors, managers, or my boss. However, my perspective changed as I took on my apprenticeship at iMADdu. My supervisor was not only my boss, but also a mentor. I held meetings, got feedback, asked for help, took notes, observed, and most notably, had 1:1 time to converse together.

I have had past supervisors that I looked up to, but working with my supervisor at iMADdu, Mona Anita Olsen, was different. My past supervisors never really took the time to push or pull me into the right direction. I only considered my supervisors as merely my supervisors and simply took orders and did as I was told. The iMADdu experience is much more than that…
