A Mentor encourages and enables another person's professional or personal development, they help focus their efforts by setting goals and giving feedback to the Mentee.
Mentor came from the literature of ancient Greece:
In Homer's epic, The Odyssey, Odysseus was away from home fighting and journeying for 20 years. During that time, Telemachus, the son he left as a babe in arms, grew up under the supervision of Mentor, an old and trusted friend. When the goddess Athena decided it was time to complete the education of young Telemachus, she visited him disguised as Mentor and they set out together to learn about his father.
Today, we use the word mentor for anyone who is a positive, guiding influence in another person's life.

Thank you doesn't adequately express my gratitude for the experience, the class, the warmth and constant support I receive from Kelly. I couldn't have asked for a better mentor to support me on my journey.
The mentorship that the EA Inc. members provide has been an absolute life saver for me - they are so knowledgeable & more than happy to pass on that knowledge to see other EAs thrive in the industry. I feel so lucky to be part of an inspiring, supportive community!
