Over the years I have informally mentored a number of young people, usually following on from meeting them via one of the youth programmes I have worked on. Two years ago I took part in the Mentoring for All pilot run by the Museum Association, which has helped me to formalise my future mentoring relationships.
I am currently mentoring an inspiring mentee who is one of the Young Freelancers at London Transport Museum (LTM). I find that I am learning greatly from the conversations we have whilst also supporting her early on in her career; both in navigating the politics of working in the arts sector and in mapping out her future as a freelancer.

Next year there will be an additional freelance role at LTM, The Khadija Saye Photography Fellowship.
