We’ve been spotlighting some of our Beedie Luminaries and will continue this feature over the coming months, however, we’d also like to feature the Mentors who have generously volunteered their time to support our inaugural cohort! Meet mentor, David Burns who is an educational policy scholar at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and a Beedie Luminaries Selection Committee member.
Why did you decide to become a mentor with Beedie Luminaries?
I am on the Beedie Luminaries Selection Committee and was inspired by the applicants.
What was the best advice you were ever given by your mentor?
Everyone needs a critical friend to ensure that you mean precisely what you say, and you say precisely what you mean.
What would you tell your 18 year-old self now?
No rush. Entering the workforce a couple of years early is immaterial in the long run.
What are you reading right now?
