Mentoring Design Students


A couple weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to receive a group of FIT students in my office to present their final concepts for Dining by Design’s Student Design Initiative by DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS).

I met with four groups of students, each with their own unique ideas for their installations.

Here are some pictures from that day:

I think mentoring is one of my favorite aspects of my career. Not only do students bring an energy and excitement to what they are creating, they also challenge me to think beyond my own comfort zone and step into somewhere new.

Tell me about one mentor who changed your life.
