It’s been 3 years since we started our Student to Stemette programme. To celebrate all the work done with young STEM women in partnership with Deutsche Bank Citizenship and their Born to Be programme, we’re running a blog series sharing what Sherpees have gained and been doing whilst being on the programme.

This week it’s Tahanni who was part of the London Cohort 5. Her Sherpa (mentor) was Kerry-Ann from Salesforce who is a Technology Consultant.

When reflecting on my Student to Stemette experience I thought about how much I’ve grown from the first day of meeting my amazing, inspirational mentor. I recreated growth within the four month programme, from the first month to the last, by doing paintings to signify each month. I’ve explained the meaning behind each picture and my journey in the audio below :).

Some quotes that speak for my mentorship experience with Kerry 🙂

“A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.” – Anonymous  

“A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.” – Bob Proctor
