Christopher Jadallah, PhD student in Education

"Participating in this program has allowed me gain experience being a responsive mentor for two wonderful undergraduate students and introduce them to the world of university research. Both are interested in research in a field completely different than mine, making what I offered aimed at general capacity-building for both professional and personal development. They ended up teaching me as much as I taught them over the past several months. I am excited to continue working with the MMP in the future and continue to further my own professional development as a mentor."
