Zulum Elumogo, Social Policy with Government (3rd year)
I have decided to become a Mentor in order to help other students maximise their potential during their time as an LSE student. I want others to thrive and find their rhythm. Hopefully I can empower this through giving some advice and wisdom I’ve picked up during my various roles and involvements during my time.

I wanted to become a mentor because I have been mentored before and understand how invaluable a mentor's advice and knowledge can be. Furthermore, as some who identifies as BAME, I understand how isolating and scary it can be being a minority within in a predominantly white university. I would like to show other BAME students how best to utilise the resources and expertise available to them. We have been given an amazing opportunity, to study at a world-renowned university, very few people like us (BAME) are ever granted, therefore we should make the most of that opportunity (whilst of course having lots of fun).
