Thank Your Mentors!

In honor of Mentorship Week at The Root, share memories and say thanks to your biggest supporters.


There is someone in your life -- a parent, professor, relative, coach, friend or boss -- who encouraged you, supported you, taught you and helped you get where you wanted to go. Today is your opportunity to thank that person for the gift of mentorship.

In celebration of Mentorship Week here at The Root, share your appreciations, fondest memories and lessons learned from your mentors in the comments field below. We'll pick out our favorites and post them on the site.

Happy Mentorship Week!
