Christopher Soekinto, a business major from Indonesia, encourages students to apply for the position. Here he shares his experience as a Peer Mentor: “Being a peer mentor is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. This has taught me to be responsible, not just for myself, but for others. Furthermore, it’s not only about giving help and information to the students, we also learn from them. In the working world, being accountable is essential. That is to say, I believe that students should have this experience to prepare them for the future.”
