Episode Summary 

As a mentee, Lily had the opportunity to be mentored by Dr. Fio Dossetto, who had built the product-led content engine at Hotjar.

 

The mentorship experience was amazing for Lily, as Fio’s down-to-earth nature and extensive knowledge made it feel like chatting with a friend. Fio not only provided a confidence boost but also opened doors to opportunities, such as client referrals and speaking on a panel together.

 

Shifting to Lily’s experience as a mentor, she discusses the importance of representation and giving back.  As someone who didn’t see many African faces in her field, she understands the impact an African mentor would have had on her confidence and mindset. 

 

Lily encourages others to become mentors because she believes that everyone has something valuable to share.

 

Mentoring not only helps the mentees but also challenges mentors to expand their own knowledge and perspectives.
