Name: Adeola Gbakinro
Age: 22
Year of the Fix: 2019
Location: Bexley, London
Campaign: To encourage young people to seek out a mentor.

I didn’t know much about medicine, the field I wanted to go into when I was younger.

 

My first mentor was a doctor and he helped me a lot.

 

Later I had one who was in the corporate world  and my third mentor was a woman who worked for a start-up company.

 

They all gave me lots of useful information and they’d always be there for me, even if I wanted to talk about personal things.

 

It made me much more confident and made me realise the abilities I have.

 

One day I’d like to be a mentor myself. I know how much mentoring has helped me and I’d like to help other people.

I would like to thank the following people for helping me with this fix:
