Anna and Emma’s mentoring match has finished now and both agree that it was a great success! ⭐️

I remember watching Anna’s video and she shared that she worked in a library and this made me really happy. Her video helped me put a face to her name and see that she was a real person.

Our first meeting went on longer than planned but I saw this as a really positive sign and I was looking forward to being matched with her.

I was relieved that Anna understood the need for a balance during our match. We got to do a lot of great things that I didn’t even realise existed but it was nice to have some down time as well.

Overall, it’s been a really positive experience to be matched with Anna and I’m looking forward to revisiting some of the activities that we did.


When I first met Emily, she was quiet but I soon found out that once she got talking, she was clearly very passionate about a lot of different topics.

I have been pleasantly surprised at the range of activities we have done during the match but we have always made time for a chat and a cup of tea.

This was my first match with a young person so I wasn’t sure what to expect but it has been a really rewarding experience. I’ve really enjoyed my time with Emily and I am so proud of what she has achieved.
