As part of my scholarship requirement, I am involved in various international organizations on campus. This year, I participated in the Global fellows mentoring program and OUA Ambassadors. The mentorship was a continuation from last semester, where I kept the same group of freshmen I was matched with. As with last semester, it was difficult to communicate and meet up with my mentees due to schedules and overall communication issues. While I like the idea of the mentee/mentor program, I think it needs some adjustments to be as effective and helpful to the incoming freshmen. Since this was the first year the program was enacted, there some difficulties that were unexpected or certain things to be tweaked. While I Weill not be able to participate in the program since I will not be in Norman next year, I look forward to getting involved again once I get back to OU.
