Started mentoring
Am excited to announce that I have been chosen to participate in the Exchange with Google Developers program for the upcoming DevFest 2021 pilot as a Mentor! https://events.withgoogle.com/exchange-with-google-developers/

Exchange with Google Developers gives community organizers a platform to create tailored learning and self-development opportunities for mentees based on their specific requests addressed by mentors in a live mentoring session.

Applications are open to be a mentor or mentee.

 Developers willing to contribute as mentors to the community, driving social impact in the ecosystem. The golden rule is that they need to be knowledgeable on the subject of mentoring they’ll provide. Typically GDGs, GDEs, WTM ambassadors, GDSCs leads and Accelerator mentors are a good place to start when thinking about mentors.

 Developers (beginners or experienced), aiming for a better understanding of Google Technologies, learning resources, use cases and best practices. You’re going to be expected to specify your technical challenge in your application.
