I want my mentees to do better than I do. The three core values that guide my mentorship are innovation, truth-seeking and loyalty.

Innovation is necessary for us to truly have a positive impact on humanity. Only by seeking the truth can we develop innovations that help humanity. Loyalty helps to accelerate the learning process and the pace of the work accomplished by the mentees. When these three core values are applied in the context of education, something special happens!
