“I can imagine without my mentor, it would have been still hard for me to find the right direction. My business goal has became very clear and I have gained full vision for my business since joining the mentorship program and my mentor has given me full support and advice on the industry insights and introduced me a variety of possibilities of the travel business.”


- Munkhtuya Nyamdavaa, 2019 Q1 

Founder of Nomadica brand, Impact Discovery LLC

Being in the GWC mentorship program has been a life-changing experience. I have never thought about my life goals and purpose when I am growing up until I entered the GWC mentoring program.

Having a person who is from a completely different background and whom I can fully trust gives me a new perspective on my life. My mentor listened to me and provided my support to explore myself. I am lucky to be selected by GWC and I am grateful for everything I have learned so far from the mentoring program.

I would highly recommend this program to everyone.
