"As an international student, it is essential to have someone to guide me on my professional path in this country. The mentorship program allows me to have the guidance of someone knowledgeable and experienced in the biotech and business field, such as Andrew Lewis. He has helped me grow my professional network and provided advice in seeking job opportunities. This mentorship has also helped me to have more confidence in myself and to ask for feedback and internal referrals from various professionals in leadership positions in the company where I am doing my internship."
