“Through the Hart Center's Mentor Program, I gained key insights into the nature of the field I'm headed into, all the while developing a professional relationship that will continue beyond my time at SMU. My Hart mentor helped me add both an industry and personal context to the skills I was developing through my academic and extracurricular work.”
