Hear what others had to say:

“Being a mentor has been a very meaningful experience for me. It has made me realize how important it is for young Muslim women to have a female role model in their life. It has especially made me appreciate the mentoring I myself have received over the years.”

“Being a part of the ANNISAA mentorship program has helped me to develop and hone leadership and life skills that I can now use in the workplace as well as in my community.”

“Things have been great ever since (I participated in ANNISAA’s Mentorship Program) and my career only keeps moving forward. The inspiration provided by ANNISAA’s mentoring program keeps me moving and, looking back, applying for the program was the best decision I’ve made while settling in Canada.”

“I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the ANNISAA Program for the amazing opportunity to grow, and to my Mentor, who has opened my eyes to a new way of being on this transformational journey.”

“It has meant having a “big sister” in the professional world to call when we’re confused! It’s been great to have a mentor who provides guidance, laughter and support.”

“It’s a very good match. I’ve left the initiating to her. She is vision packed. We’re now working on her confidence and I’m sure she’ll accomplish that. I think it’s important to have a mentor who is there to help you with your confidence.”

“It’s hard to find someone who wants to see you succeed, and my mentor helps me find the answers I seek.”
