Recently I’ve been thinking about the kind of person I want to be when I grow up. Not necessarily professionally - more personal stuff like being a dad one day and being a good neighbor to the people who live on my block. I want to be the kind of person who understands how to be a white male ally, and who goes on adventures in the mountains, and who knows how to walk with someone through their grief, and who can taste the difference between types of scotch.
Anyway, I started looking for a mentor who was “Banks in 15 years” and I found him, and we’ve been meeting once a month for almost a year. Our careers are quite different, but I can see myself in him, and it’s become a relationship that I know will change my life.
