Self description

Male , 29

I am currently a final year student at a University in London. I am coming to the point in my life where I need to find a job. I have learnt a lot from university about various different aspects of life, from living away from your family, to adjusting to the responsibility of adult life.
I enjoy a number of activities. I am a big football fan and support the mighty Queens Park Rangers (Don't laugh). I also enjoy socialising with friends, and listening to a variety of different music.
I've learnt a lot from my time at University and feel I understand a number of the problems students face. If you want to know what being a student at university is like, I can help.

Life experiences

University

I am currently finishing my final year of University in London. I feel I could help people who wish to know more about University and the choices available to them.
I have been to 2 separate Universities in London and can draw on my own experience of the various different aspects of university life.
I have dealt with 'dropping out' of university and understand just how difficult a decision that is to make. However, I am also about to graduate, so I have encountered most aspects of university life. If you would like to know about the student lifestyle, how to budget, finding accommodation, or need help with any problems you face, I may be able to help.

Education

I am currently coming to the point in my life where I am leaving the education system to find a job.
I have experience in many of the problems students face in School, College and University.
School can be a very stressful environment for any person, especially during exam periods. If you need any advice on problems such as how to cope with stress, or even just how to build a revision timetable, I could help.
Social aspects surrounding education can also be very hard. Making new friends can often be quite a daunting prospect, especially if you are shy. I feel I can help provide information on some of the best ways to meet new people and make new friends.

Stress

Many people encounter stress at some point in their life. Stress can seriously affect your everyday life and the way you function. I have suffered from severe stress myself, and have learnt a number of different ways to deal with it.
Stress can be caused by a number of factors. University and school life can both be very stressful with the responsibilities put on students to achieve. However, there are a number of ways to tackle stress that I have learnt.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

My motivation for joining Horsemouth is primarily to give advice to people who need it. I feel that if I had been able to ask people about their own life experiences when I was younger, I could have made some better decisions. I understand how stressful life and education can become at times and would like to provide whatever help or advice I can to anyone who needs it. I think this kind of mentoring is an excellent idea, as it allows for people to give advice based on their own experience. It is uncommon to ever be able to directly seek advice from someone who has already faced the difficulties you feel you may encounter. This site enables anyone seeking help, to go and find it.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
