It’s been five years since I graduated from Wellesley. Though I don’t yearn to relive those days as a naive college student, I am extremely grateful to the strong alumnae network that the school has all over the world. It was through the W Network that I received much sage advice from alums in different lines of work and made connections with people who ultimately helped my career development. So it’s only natural that I want to help others in the network now who reach out to me. Oddly, what they say is true about helping others; it’s not completely selfless when you mentor others, because not only are they gaining something, but you yourself are benefiting because you actually feel good as a result.
