I participated in the 2012 edition of Mentoring Walk. Currently, I am in the Netherlands pursuing a Masters programme in Sustainable Food Process Engineering at Wageningen University.

After participating in the 2012 edition of Mentoring Walk, I had the opportunity to visit the United States to under study women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, I also had the opportunity to take part in the Vodafone World of difference where I volunteered at a NGO known as Street Girls Aid. Taking part in the Mentoring Walk boosted my confidence and since then I have managed to take up leadership roles and also strived to make a difference anywhere I find myself.

My mentor's name is Victoria Blankson , she is an architect who helped design the Ridge church building. We have kept an effective communication since I left Ghana.

I must say I am really blessed for having had the opportunity to take part in the 2012 Mentoring Walk. I wish you and your team more blessings from God in the coming years.

I hope one day I can also contribute meaningfully to Mentoring Walk.

It has been three years since I participated and I am absolutely grateful. My mentor, Gertrude Apkalu and I communicate regularly. I saw her this Christmas at a charity event I organised for an orphanage at Kasoa. She came with her family to support me and made a donation with her brother.

She has been my number one cheer leader. Not only does she support and advice me but supports my friends too. She goes out of her way to support me and I am so grateful for the opportunity Mentoring Walk has given me –A friendship for life.

Please honour her in the next event. She is a true mentor!!!

I also founded an N.G.O called Pass-a-book-on three years ago. Pass-a-book-on aims at spreading literacy among children. We organise reading clinics for children in schools and communities and also donate books to children in rural areas. Here is a link to the blog http://pass-a-book-on.blogspot.com/. I am also a founding member of a Social Media Initiative called SHARE YOUR LUNCH; we identify deprived communities and go there to share food with them. A few places visited include Jamestown, Chorkor, Darkuman, Bubiashie, Sodom and Gomorrah, Abbossey Okai and Obrachire (in the Central region). I landed a good job in cooperate Ghana (my mentor was my referee in my job application). I work full time at Centre for Development and Intercultural development (CEDIC). CEDIC is the CSR unit of STRATCOMM AFRICA. She has been genuinely concerned about every area of my life. I am hoping that I will get a chance to do something special for her at the next launch-just to tell her how much I love and appreciate her!

Thank you for Mentoring Women. It inspired me. I am currently mentoring a few teenagers. One of them is visually impaired.

I participated in Mentoring Walk 2010 and was paired with Anne Sackey. I must say the experience has been great and I’m still in touch with Anne.

When I participated in this walk all I wanted to do in terms of a career was become a journalist but Anne helped me to have an open mind to attempt anything related to that profession.

After completing Ghana Institute of Journalism in 2010 the school took me on as a Teaching Assistant (TA) for national service- part of the first badge that started the TA programme. I got a job with Stratcomm Africa as a Communications Officer. The experience was over whelming and set me on my career path as a communication specialist. This wouldn’t have been possible if Anne hadn’t supported me to have an open mind about career opportunities. I am currently at Access Bank and I am praying for good counsel and strength on this new journey.

 I want to use this opportunity to express my heartfelt appreciation and admiration for the opportunity you gave me through this platform.

Dear Ms Brigitte Dzogbenuku,

On behalf of all the mentees for the 2010 Mentoring Walk, I would like to express heartfelt appreciation to the entire management of Mentoring Women Ghana.

The diverse learning experiences so far has been wonderful and affective for our development. I have tapped numerous tips from my mentor (Nana Araba Abban) and the other mentors. She has been an inspiration in diverse ways. I have started recording my cash inflows and outflows in the little book she advised me to buy.

Ms Brigitte, I would like to inform you that I am ready to help as a volunteer in Mentoring Walk 2011. The relationship you have helped me start with my mentor is much appreciated. Thank you so much and keep up the good work. God bless you.

I will keep in touch.

Yours faithfully,

Hi Brigitte,

...Brigitte congratulations for a great job done. I really appreciate the opportunity to have been a part of the program. For me it has been very fulfilling even though I missed the first week. I am in touch with my mentees and hope to build a relationship with them.

Once again thank you so much and may God richly bless you.

Thanks to Mentoring Women Ghana, during my shadow week I had the opportunity to sit on an interview panel with my mentor (Angela Dedo Kofi), and the mock interview with Unilever helped me to know presentation is key.
