What was the most challenging aspect of the MomentuM program for you, and what did you find most rewarding?

The most challenging aspect of the program was having to come out of my shell during the networking events and at the beginning of the mentorship. As I am naturally an introverted and reserved person, I struggled with this at the beginning of the program and worked hard to address this, especially during the speed mentoring event.

What stood out to me most was seeing how the provided resources, milestones [assessments] and mentor feedback and perspectives directly fed into my success at each workshop and in my professional endeavours. The combination of each of these aspects really allowed me to develop strategies and maximise these opportunities to the best of my abilities.


"I was incredibly fortunate to be teamed up with a MomentuM Mentor who was invested greatly in my own professional development. Seeing his recommendations and feedback translate into success across my professional endeavours over the course of the semester was incredibly rewarding."

What was the most vlauable aspect of the MomentuM program for you, and did this have any impact on your career and professional development?

The most valuable part of MomentuM was how insightful my mentor was in relation to their workplace; he allowed me to be fully immersed within his professional world. I was also able to challenge my future goals and set realistic actions that would help in achieving them. MomentuM was a great experience and has opened my eyes to future career opportunities.

MOMENTUM - 2019

What was the most rewarding aspect of the MomentuM program for you, and do you have any advice for students who may be considering applying?

For me, the best part of MomentuM was my very supportive mentor. He helped me both in the development of my career, and personal characteristics. Instead of telling me what to do or giving me 'shoulds' he channelled my thoughts and inspired me. The chance to connect to other mentees and supporters of this program also allowed me to expand my network and get an insight to the real business world.

The key message to other students is that what you get is actually what you give. Finishing the tasks is just the basics. If you want to thrive in the MomentuM program you need to be fully prepared to challenge yourself, actively practice as instructed and think out of the box.


"MomentuM is a program that enables us [students] to find who they really are, define their objectives and develop via step by step milestones."

What was the most vlauable aspect of the MomentuM program for you, and did this have any impact on your career and professional development?

The most valuable part of MomentuM was working on my professional development goals in a step-by-step manner and learning something valuable from each of the milestones that prepared us impeccably for each of the events, and meet-ups. In addition, the opportunity to make connections, learn and network not just with my mentor but several other mentors through the different MomentuM events was invaluable.


" MomentuM is an amazing opportunity to develop the critical qualities required to be job-ready, and for professional development. A “must” experience for every student."
