I find being a mentor very fulfilling. Teaching and Mentoring are my passion, and my sessions with my mentees have helped it flower in different, beautiful ways - with the learning, discussing, and most importantly, creating something together! I am grateful to MyCaptain, because I get to meet wonderful budding writers each month, and have the opportunity to be with them for a part of their creative journey.
-Captain Madhura, Mentor for Creative Writing
I joined MyCaptain as a Captain back in 2015. I love mentoring students, and design has always been my passion. In my journey as a Mentor with MyCaptain i have mentored over 500 students in Graphic Design, and scores of them have gone on to do amazing things in the field. It gives me a feeling of pride and fulfilment to see my mentees grow and follow their Passion for Design. When they share their work or success with me, and credit me for it, the feeling cannot be put into words. Being called “Captain” by hundreds of young people looking for a Mentor and guide is out of the World!
-Captain Fatema , Mentor for Graphic Design
When I found out about MyCaptain, I knew this was exactly how I wanted to contribute to the education field in India. The lack of focused guidance in the industry has left many students confused. And this platform rightfully bridges that gap with the help of ever evolving young minds of the country. As a mentor, it was an extremely fulfilling experience that allowed me to not just pass my knowledge and help other youngsters define their career choices, but also to learn from my students! It always intrigued me how every student had their own set of doubts that I wouldn’t have ever thought of. It made me study more, and share my work experiences. It makes me truly proud to see so many of my mentees finding the field of their choice and working towards it! Most of all, they keep me in loop and still reach out to me for help, and it’s always a pleasure to push them ahead in their journey!
