I signed on to be a mentor to a first year law student at my law school. Because, yeah, I'm not already working more than full time (and being paid part time) and I have time for this!
Well hopefully I will have time, just not this week.
But anyway, I signed up and my Mentee immediately emailed me, so I agreed to meet before 3 weeks passed.
My mentee's name? Abteen. I got a resume. Looked at it. (impressive). Looking forward to meeting this nice, young lady and hopefully find some way to help/encourage her.
I was running late (woot there is a surprise). We had exchanged cell phone numbers so I called her.
And a man answered. Huh?
Yep, Abteen is a boy. Oops. Glad I called so that my shock and awe was over the phone and not written all over my face. Not that I can't be a mentor for a boy. I just assumed it was a girl. I don't know why. Oops again.
