Equité PSO

BeWell Mentor

Equité is a Private Student Organisation, much like a sorority, that allow students who do not stay in University Accommodation to have the same experiences as those who do; everything from sport and culture to social events.

BeWell is Stellenbosch University's mentoring and wellness project for mentors and first-year students/mentees. Mentors are assigned a group of first-year students to support and guide through Orientation Week and their first year at University.

From my experience as a mentor I have learned that I have a passion for people and organizing events. My skill set regarding planning, communication and multitasking have increased substantially. Through the BeWell project I have also learned to lead a balanced life.
