Comparing myself then to now, even if it was a small amount of time I have seen myself improve as a better person, and knowing I am capable of doing more than I thought I can do. Mentoring has shown me that I am patient, driving, willing, confident, open-minded and considerate. I have learned that I really enjoy guiding and teaching my mentee, especially math since we’re both passionate about it. I can relate my experience with The Alchemist because the character Santiago learns many new experiences and evolves into a person that brings out the best of himself all the while his personal experiences makes the impossible, possible.
