"Olivia is a wonderful mentor. She is very thoughtful, personable and overall the best mentor a mentee could ever wish for. She took the teaching the concept portion of the program very seriously I learned so many new things on the topic I was researching. I can definitely say she really inspired me to keep doing research! You can also tell that she puts a lot of time and effort for her mentees through her attention to detail and her comments. She really does her best to give you a deep and detailed review of your work. I always gained some very good insight when editing my work! I also really appreciated that Olivia took the time and energy to go through the thick and thin of a research project and make sure that I had a great learning experience. I was beyond delighted on having Olivia as my mentor and I am most definitely sure you will too."
