More Questions

Dear Olutosin:
Thank you for answering my questions. As for what to call me, are you comfortable with Ma Natalie, or Natalie Ma? I think that the meaning of your name in your native language is especially appropriate for you and should give you extra comfort in your challenges.

This is June first -- the official beginning of the Program - so I want to wish you extreme good fortune with it. You must have a computer, or at least, easy access to one so that you can receive the teaching materials and assignments. When we begin our direct communication for the mentoring process, will you be able to do that by telephone?
I hope you are feeling both excitement and confidence as the program begins. If you have any concerns, you can email me about that.
Best to you,
Ma Natalie
