...for me this mentoring walk has been of immense benefit. My mentor and I have planned to meet and talk over lunch once a month and had our first meeting in March and also we constantly communicate through emails and text messages.

On our first meeting she took me to her office and explained the nature of her work, showed me around her office, we talked about how to gain self confidence and be able to speak in public. And one thing she said that struck me was that if I am able to talk to her or any other person then I can talk to a multitude. She suggested I start an investment club and also start building my public speaking skills by giving talks on investment to my church group.

On a lighter side, when we went for lunch I did the ordering and guess what I ordered? Banku and tilapia on a hot afternoon and for the first time in so many years I made her take a heavy [meal] in the afternoon. She confessed she normally have a cup of tea in the afternoon and was wondering if she would be able to work for the rest of the day.

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.
