My Ideal Mentor-Would have a diverse range of skills including: game design, film making, and music composition.-Would allow me to move on from their mentorship after I have achieved a stronger knowledge of design by working under them.-Would be willing to push me to work beyond my skills so as to help me become a better designer.-Would maintain the potential to collaborate together after the mentorship ends.
A Mentor According to Greene-A mentor does not have to be the highest or most prominent in a field or subject.-A domineering master may make you shallow carbon copy.-A mentor is a parental type figure who should help you to learn and eventually release you to become your own master.-A mentor should help give you confidence in or lend clarity to your lifes task.
