A Tale of Mentorship

Having a mentor can be a powerful thing. Someone who believes in you, inspires you — someone who shows you a path when you’re lost. In this episode, we talk with an Ohio State student and faculty member about the power of mentorship, what they learned, and how relationships like theirs have the power to change lives.
