Who is your champion?

No matter how successful you are at learning on your own, you still need a mentor who can speak into your life, give you ideas, and help encourage you when the learning gets tough.

Inspired by Rita Pierson’s TED talk entitled “Every child deserves a champion”. Email template below: get in touch with a mentor today!

Hello and thanks for taking the time to read this message. I wanted to say thank you for being such a great role model to me. I imagine it took a lot of diligence to get to where you are today, and I am sure you have learnt a lot along the way. I was wondering if you would be open to sharing some of your wisdom with me and mentoring me as I strive to follow in your footsteps. I need some help coming up with goals and steps to take going forward. I would also really appreciate your help and encouragement as I try to reach my goals. Please let me know if you would be open to mentoring me on my own learning journey. Thank you so much in advance!

Feel free to adapt this to suit you. Mention the area in which you would like help (e.g. writing, tennis, relationships). Add in your name and the name of the person you are emailing to give it a more personal feel.
