Fuuny, I started writing because of my mentee. He started writing when he barely understood some of the concepts. I will proofread his articles, check code snippet for correctness, etc. I saw the way he grew and became more and ore independent. And he was helping a ton of people along the way. And he got noticed by really cool brands. Of course, I knew a tad more than he did, but if you Google both our names, you'd easily think he was my mentor. This made me realized the power of exposure and putting yourself out there, teaching what you know. My career literarily turned around in the first month I started writing.
