Mentoring Scheme 🤝

It is necessary that we have better representation of students from all backgrounds at medical school and beyond, so I decided to start a small mentoring scheme to support prospective medical students with their applications. 

This is a free year-long programme for students in Year 12 and above that will comprise of monthly meetings (can be more frequent than this if time permits), goal-setting and signposting resources and opportunities to strengthen each aspect of your application. These meetings will take place via the online platform that suits you most.

The eligibility criteria is that you must have attended only non-selective state education, as determined by the UK government’s Department for Education (DfE), since the age of 11. ​

I am open to mentoring students regardless of their entry into medical school whether that be Year 12-13 students, gap year entrants or graduate entry medical applicants.

Applications are now CLOSED

If you do not meet these criteria but are still interested in mentorship, please submit an enquiry.

Feedback from past students 💬

10/10 !!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! Words cannot explain how grateful I am for your help! I received 3 offers this year because of this AMAZING HARDWORKING WOMAN!

Jessica’s mock interviews are so useful, she puts you on the spot which helps massively in emulating the interview's intensity! She gave me written feedback so I never felt I was missing out on something important.

She helped me improve the content, structure, and delivery of my answers AND she commented on my overall performances. I loved how she had tailored interview questions for both MMI and panel formats.

 

Jess has always encouraged me like a sister and BOOSTED my confidence and self-esteem massively for the interview. The positive change I have made by being mentored by Jess will stay with me for the rest of my days! I owe so much to her for changing my life at this stage of my medical journey!

Just wanted to let you know that I ended up getting all my offers!!! I still can't quite believe it and can't express just how much your help was a massive part of that, from UCAT to personal statement to finally interview there were so many times where I could feel out of depth and not enough and I honestly believe having your continuous guidance and support gave me such a boost.

 

It's not every day you find someone who is so willing to help a random stranger and give up literally hours of your time just to help us and motivate us to seek an inspirational vocation. Whether it be for the one on one help you were so willing to give from bringing out the best version of the PS to the practice zoom calls, or your super helpful blog or just being inspired by seeing you boss your way through becoming a doctor all I can say is thank you so so much!

I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for everything that you have done for me. You went out of your way and helped me with my personal statement, not just one time but several times as I was on a gap year.

 

You looked at my personal statement when I was in year 13 and also when I was in my gap year reapplying. Also not only that, but you gave me a chance to be on your mentoring programme, and as busy as you are, you still made time for me.

 

The links that you sent were so helpful and I managed to get a role a HCA too during my gap year! I now got 3 offers. I couldn’t have done any of this without your help so I just want to thank you so much. You have been so motivational to me, I have even looked at the unis and seen that they offer bursaries and scholarship opportunities which I will definitely be applying for.

Ella, Offer Holder

I just want to thank you for all your help over these past few months. From the many personal statement drafts to the practice interviews, I am extremely grateful for all the guidance and assistance you have given me.

 

I am incredibly happy to let you know that I have received an offer from Lancaster! I acknowledge that I wouldn’t have been able to do so well without your support, so thank you for all of your help!

Arjen, Offer Holder

HUGE thank you Jessica for the time and effort you put into doing interview prep with me and mentoring me. This was a community effort, I got a lot of support from medical students who dedicated time to help me - I can’t wait to do the same now.

Anika, Offer Holder

Just wanted to thank you for all your help with my medicine application. Your personal statement reviews, interview preparation, and online resources helped so much - I’m so grateful!
 

I got 3 medicine offers! Congratulations on your Master’s offer from Cambridge! Amazing and inspiring.
May God continue to bless you in every aspect of your life.
