What is a Mentee?

Role model vs mentor

A role model is a person who serves as an example, or whose behavior is emulated by others.

A mentor is someone who uses their experience to help guide a less knowledgeable person in an ongoing relationship of learning, dialogue and challenge.

“Role Model” vs. “Mentor”

A quote from ken robinson

Mentors connect with us in a variety of ways and remain with us for varying lengths of time.

Some are with us for decades in an evolving role that might start as teacher/student and ultimately evolve into close friendship.

Others enter our lives at a critical moment, stay with us long enough to make a pivotal difference, and then move on.

A quote from Ken Robinson


Mentors lead us to believe that we can achieve something that seemed improbable or impossible to us before we met them.

They stand by to remind us of the skills we already possess and what we can achieve if we continue to work hard.

Without a knowledgeable guide to aid us in identifying our passions, to encourage our interests, to smooth our paths, and to push us to make the most of our capacities, the journey is considerably harder.


“Each one reach one, each one teach one.” that seemed improbable or impossible to us

Thank you for your time and attention.
