FEEDBACK FROM OUR MENTORS AND MENTEES
Thank you all so much for your help and support, it feels very different when there is some actual advice in place and a supportive community where you can address questions and concerns. There was so much to change (and regarding my portfolio still is) that I felt confused and a bit lost at the start. Thank you so much for helping me with the structure! It was something to rely on and start from.
