#ScrippsSummerChallenge Week 4: Write a hand written letter to a past mentor or professor

By Mira Kuhar

Week four of the Scripps Summer Challenge yielded a great turn out, as many people were eager to write a hand written note to a past mentor or professor.

Some sent notes to friends who have graduated. Jess Carnprobst noted she was sending post cards to a few special mentors, but she didn’t want to ruin the surprise.

And of course, thank you notes are a great way of expressing yourself and showing off your personal branding accessories. Megan Newton showed us her new mint green thank you notes, a color she always uses to represent herself.
