“A mentor is somebody willing to fight for you the battles nobody else is willing to fight.” – Dr. Erika T. Camacho (who was mentored by THE Jaime Escalante)
It could be said a good mentor is worth his or her weight in gold. A good mentor counsels, encourages, supports, guides, and listens, among many other things. Mentors can come in many shapes or forms. They can be family, friends, colleagues, teachers, professors, neighbors and even complete strangers.
