Harjit: Hi, everyone. We are the Bundle Of Hers, with Harjit, Bushra, Leen, and Margaux, and we are excited to share our mentoring moments with you.
Margaux: Mentor moments can come at unexpected times or from unexpected people. These moments have been an important theme throughout our episodes, and it is a good relationship that is impactful and helps guide both our professional and personal lives.
Bushra: We believe that centering mentorship relationships around identity is vital. When we discover who we are and project our identities, we find people who we can connect with.
Leen: We wanted to create a mentoring series based on sharing moments that held life-changing and learning experiences. We also wanted to share these moments that opened up and directed our minds towards choosing our path in medicine and even influenced many aspects of our lives.
Margaux: It can seem like there's a normalized way to have a mentor and a way to officially seek them out, but I hope through this mini-series that we can share our individual mini mentor moments and show that mentors can come in many different types of relationships, even if it's just one moment with a person that you may never interact with again.
Bushra: I think I can speak for all of us when I say that mentorship kind of gives you a little bit of a guideline for whatever it is that you're looking for. It gives you an opportunity to explore things and to seek the wisdom of people who have gone through things before you. And I feel like through this mini-series, you'll be able to learn from the lessons that we've gathered over the years and kind of formulate your own thought process on how or what a mentorship relationship looks like and how it can impact your life.
Harjit: I'm excited about this mini-series because I think it will be awesome to reflect back on moments that have really impacted my life. I have also noticed that mentoring is something that you . . . a skill that you hone and get better at. And I think listening to everyone else's stories will allow me to add things in my skill set so that I can become a better mentor.
Margaux: Join us as we grow together through our reflections in this mentor moments mini-series. Please share with us your own mentor moments or how you are reflecting on ours @bundleofhers on Instagram or @bundleofherspodcast on Facebook.
