This is an incomplete post; I’ll post the official #2 as soon as possible!
My mentor and I haven’t met in person yet, due to my recent trip to China and her trip out of town as well. The two of us have been contacting each other frequently through email; we’ve been discussing meetings and my goals and plans for the project, as well as what we could achieve each meeting. I’m really excited to be working with my mentor, as all her messages are pleasantly written and positive, despite some misunderstandings with the criminal record check and the delayed first meeting.
For the time being, this will have to do as my stand-in post. I’m looking forward to my first meeting with my mentor!
