I found out about the opportunity to be a Peer Mentoring Intern through an email from the School of English. I was a mentee in first year and then a mentor in second year, so I had experienced both sides of the scheme and found it very valuable to the settling in process. I wanted to help other first years to enjoy Leeds as much as I have by improving the scheme further.
