Mentoring Programme
“Being in WiHN has been an incredible and valuable experience in the sense that I was also able to meet many other amazing women who all shared a common goal; to better the lives of those through the health sector.” - Mentee

“It has been really rewarding. It keeps me very grounded to be supporting girls in the same position I was in last year, it feels good to help, and it has definitely taught me a lot about myself in terms of empathy and how much I actually enjoy being able to help out first years.” - Mentor
