Key to mentoring to go with flow
NAME: BEN WRIGHT
Age : 37
How I got into it: My partner mentioned it to me once and I just ended up looking into it.
Who I mentor / My Little Sister /Brother: Cadeyrn
I was inspired by: I do quite a bit of work in schools so I’ve always seen a lot of good kids who just need that little bit of quality one on one time.
It helps if you can: Be yourself and be consistent.
Things we do together: Play football, play games, chill out.
Best experience / best thing about it: Seeing Cadeyrn grow.
Best tip: Don’t have high expectations just go with the flow.
Heart-warming moment: I left something behind once and he looked BIG BROTHER after it until I returned.
This is /isn’t for you if: You are prepared to give it time and a real go.
