Gesa-Christin Meyer Zur Heyde took part in the previous mentoring programme, and was matched with a PR Marketing professional. She said:

 “My mentor gave me an invaluable professional advantage. She answered all my queries and fears and made me more confident in what I wanted to achieve.  This is a great opportunity and should be available to more students. They will benefit so much from it. I’m glad I took part in it”  Meyer
