1st Place Winner A Letter To My Future Mentor”

Fear is a limitation, and facing those fears when I have someone (you!) to hold my hand will be so much easier than trying to do it alone later on. Let me know who the go-to people are, it’ll make both of our jobs easier. Ask me to write a newsletter item that will be shown to my colleagues, to help me push past the fear of writing for others.barrister

I also hope that you will push me out of my comfort zone. Like anyone else there are things that scare me, and those fears will hold me back. First, I want to express my appreciation for the time you will dedicate to helping me, and hope that you know how important your guidance and insight is to me. I hope that you had a mentor when you were first navigating the waters of paralegal-dom.barrister

It’s great to have someone tell you how good you are at something, but most people already know those things.
