What exactly is female mentoring?

Mentorship is a process in which girls reflect on and discuss their development prospects and career potential with an expert in that field. This brief description, however, conceals a much more detailed explanation. A mentor is someone who guides you through all of your uncertainties and unanswered questions, such as:

​"Where should I look for motivation in these hectic times?" "How can I aim high if I'm not sure about my future?"

Girls' mentorship is like having a strong shoulder to lean on when they are confused about life. Mentors play an important role in their lives and can be of great assistance in a variety of situations.

A mentor is defined as:

  • Someone who encourages girls even when it appears that they lack certain skills.

  • Someone who believes in you even when you don't succeed.

  • Someone who can guide you through the process of changing careers or moving to a new country.

  • Someone who will be your staunchest ally regardless of the circumstances.

  • Finally, there is someone who will be there for you when the rest of the world fails you.

Having a mentor means having someone to whom you can express your fears and uncertainties, which often live in your head and haunt your heart. It is someone who will read your CV and tell you the difference between dialogue and professional writing. They will be able to develop your self-worth and self-love by drawing on your life experiences.

A mentor can see your potential and present you with a million different ways to realise it. However, mentoring can benefit the girls' career choices in addition to their personal development.

Recommendations tailored to you: Depending on the girl's career path, a mentor may volunteer to examine or analyze her performance. They have prior experience in the industry and can provide girls with a personalized assessment of their strengths and weaknesses. They can then work with them to create a plan.

There are various mentoring techniques available, depending on the individual:

  1. Mentoring over the Internet (Phone, email, or text) is one that is convenient for each individual and can be done from the comfort of your own home. If your home environment is not conducive, there are other options available, which will be discussed later in this blog. Online mentoring program can help connect more than two mentors with the mentee, adding another dimension. There would be a greater likelihood of availability, saving both time and money. Mentees can easily contact their mentors in this manner.

  3. Group mentoring sessions expose you to the experiences of others and allow you to connect on a personal level. Individuals who struggle to communicate their thoughts and feelings may benefit from these sessions. Group mentoring can be more engaging and can push you out of your comfort zone, allowing you to grow. However, there are drawbacks to this type as well: no one-on-one interaction, possibly limited confidentiality due to group or competition among group members.

With their magical powers, mentors can persuade girls that a tiny wooden stick filled with lead can make marks that another can read as words.
