Self description

Female , 30

I live with my partner and my beautiful cat who I love more than anything and I am getting married next year. I'm a second year student at the University of Wolverhampton studying Deaf Studies and Film, and I also act as a trained student mentor to first year students. I have recently completed Level 2 Basic British Sign Language and love to interact with people from different communities regardless of differences. When I finish Uni next year I would love to work with Deaf children or develop my mentoring skills further and train as a counsellor.

Life experiences

Deafness

I'm doing a degree in Deaf studies so I spend a lot of time mixing with the Deaf community, and have learned a lot about work and research into Deafness.

Mentoring

I am a trained student mentor for the University of Wolverhampton and provide support to first year university students. I love mentoring and the training process has taught me more about myself than I ever imagined possible.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

Having worked as a mentor for the university for about a year now, I really want to use the skills I have gained outside of university to provide support to more people. Mentoring is a two-way relationship that can benefit everyone involved and getting more people aware of it by using the internet is brilliant! Everyone should have the opportunity to get involved in mentoring and this website provides that.

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!'
