Mentor Magic


I was so surprised and flatterd to be asked to mentor an RUHS Senior last Fall. Emiline is the oldest daughter of my girlfriend, Beth. She came to me in September and asked if I would mentor her through her Senior Project. Her task was to develop a product, market it, write a paper about it and put together and oral and visual presentation. All the while, she was to check in with a panel of community and faculty members. Senior Project success is mandatory for graduation. The seniors at Randolph Union High School are an incredibly talented group! Walking through the display of completed projects last week was so much fun!
Of course, my favorite display was Emiline's! She did such a great job! She had a great product to sell ~ a gift set with all natural body wash, shea lotion & handmade cold~process soap. She opened an Etsy shop to market it and put together an adorable pamphlet. I am so proud to have been her mentor. Way to go, Emiline!!

Yay, Emiline!

What a cool thing to do. It must have been nice to be a part of it. :)

That's so cool! I had to do a much simpler version my senior year. I wish I'd have thought about soapmaking!

Her product is soo cute! What's her Etsy shop name?
