Mentor

Have you ever had a mentor? What was the greatest lesson you learned from him or her?

Scott Eastham was a mentor to me when I fell in love with Media Studies. Sadly he died before I could do my Masters Thesis with him.  I only knew him for a short time.  I came to know more about him from meeting his family and the other people that he had worked alongside, both students and colleagues.

Scott was simply an amazing human being.  What I most learnt from him was that every moment is an opportunity to learn.  I learnt it by watching how Scott lived his life, which he did by doing just that.  He would even find learning opportunities in the students that came to him to learn.

He taught me to never stop asking questions.  To question myself as much as anyone or thing else.  To understand what motivated me and what was a barrier. His faith in what I could achieve, which was far more than I thought possible, was a bolster to my lagging confidence.

Author:

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
