We are delighted to announce that volunteer mentor Kulsum Patel has been chosen as our Hero of the Month for June.
Kulsum Patel joined Mosaic in the West Midlands in November 2011, and in a very short period of time has become a valued member of the Mosaic Network. As Lead Mentor on the Enterprise Challenge Competition at Waverley School, Kulsum used her experience as a Business Development Manager at Paul Andrew Menswear to enthuse the participating teams and supported them with their ethical business strategy and the online business game.
Kulsum is now leading a team of three mentors at the school, and supporting a group of young people participating in our core mentoring programme.
Nadeem Bashir, Mosaic Link Teacher at Waverley School commented: “Kulsum is a wonderful inspiration to our students. Her caring personality coupled with her dedication and commitment is a real asset both to Mosaic and our school. Students have warmed to her approach and it’s inspirational to see her working with these youngsters as not only does her friendly personality shine through but it’s evident she cares and that is one of our core aims when working with young people.”
Mr Bashir continued: “One student said to me, ‘Is Kulsum in today, Sir?’ I replied, ‘Yes, she will be in later’, and his response was, ‘I was so happy to come to school this morning, Sir, because I was looking forward to Kulsum working with us later. She’s like a proper nice teacher’. I am delighted that her diligence and passion for working with young people has been recognised, and I look forward to working with her again next academic year”.
Our thanks and congratulations go to Kulsum!
