Philosophy and Portfolio

Christina Bejjani embodies the most generous and tireless spirit of mentorship I have ever encountered. She simply lives for this stuff...

Mentoring Philosophy

"As a cognitive psychologist aware of the benefits of good mentorship, I am constantly striving to improve my mentoring and emulate my own mentors, who shared similar qualities: they promoted the advancement of women and underrepresented students within STEM, created inclusive environments in their labs and classrooms, and pushed students to develop professional skills by investing the necessary effort and time into achieving their short- and long-term goals."
