Instead of finding mentors, Shiza Shahid, co-founder and ambassador of Malala Fund, recommends that people surround themselves with "friend-tors" made up of a supportive community of peers. "So my advice to young professionals is: stop seeking mentors in the hopes that they will 'lift' you up. Instead, go out and create a community that will push you, support you, and teach you," she says.
