My real thoughts about mentoring

I've always scoffed at the term "mentor." So many friends from my major would brag about their incredible mentors, and I felt like it was all for show. But as I've grown older, I've found that there have been key conversations with alumni that have been formative to my career. You could call those "mentoring moments." Because of those moments, I joined this mentoring program with the hopes that I could give back a bit, and it has been such a gratifying experience. I've enjoyed meeting these fantastic students and hearing their accomplishments and dreams. I've been able to challenge and encourage along the way, but mainly, I've been impressed. I feel like our community will be in good hands in the next 50 years.


My name is Mary Allen Mullins. I am a junior majoring in Civil Engineering with a specialization in Structural Engineering. I have an interest in coastal infrastructure. I have had internships with CB&I (Chicago Bridge and Iron) for the past two summers. I love being in the engineering school here at UA and enjoy all it has to offer. I wouldn't not be where I am today without organizations like Mentor UPP. Networking with other students is crucial to surviving in this intense field. I'm looking forward to being a mentor this year and see it as an opportunity to share the knowledge I have obtained through UA with others.
