Spring 2014 Motivarti Mentorships
Happy opening day of Motivarti Mentorship applications, potential mentees! We are thrilled to start another round, and bring a new group of students even closer to achieving their goals and dreams. If this is the first time you’re joining us, welcome! We are always excited to see new faces!
It’s a brand new year, and we know you’ve been thinking about your New Years resolutions – why not dedicate time towards putting your portfolio together and applying for your dream Mentor? We have some fantastic new Mentors, and some extremely beloved returning Mentors for you to apply to. Check back over the next month for our “Mentor of the Day” posts to learn more about each of our Mentors, and decide which ones could be right for you.
Our Fall term resulted in some awesome new portfolio pieces for our mentees, check out their hard work below:
We are so proud of our former Mentees, and cannot wait to see what opportunities come their way!
Finally, we would love to offer some tips to keep in mind when applying:
– Please be sure to read about each of our Mentors. You could find a hidden gem you would have previously never considered. All of our Mentors come with so much experience and a genuine dedication for their Mentees.
– Never give up! Some of our Mentees had to apply several times before getting matched with a Mentor. This could be your time!
– Take your application seriously. Put your heart into writing your essays, and make sure your portfolio looks professional. There’s always room to grow, but our Mentors will know you’re serious if your work is put together professionally on a blog or website.
If you’re still deciding on whether to apply, Scott Watanabe‘s Fall 2013 Mentee Genevieve Tsai said about her Mentorship, “I enjoyed working with a pro in the field I hope to someday be in, at a company I’ve always dreamed of being at! … I learned more with [Scott] than I could ever have learned just by looking at art books or favorite artists. I love the one on one feedback, honest critiques, and draw overs that are extremely productive and helpful!”
Applications for the Spring 2014 Motivarti Mentorship Program are now available and being accepted from January 13th – February 9th, 2014! Good luck to all of our applicants!
