STUDENT MENTOR: Melinda Szegedi

An interview with Ms. K and Student Mentor and Ambassador Melinda Szegedi

Ms K. (Founder of New Way) and Melinda Szegedi (both a Student Ambassador and New Way Mentor) talk about Melinda's journey as a Young Entrepreneur and also how attending New Way's programs has benefitted her.

During the New Way High School Readiness Afterschool Program, we ensure that each of our students is supported by one of our amazing mentors. We choose our mentors very carefully and trust in their abilities to nurture our students. MELINDA SZEGEDI, one of our beloved mentors, represents everything we love about being a Young Entrepreneur. Thanks to her innovative idea E-fásli, she was recently included on Forbes’s ’30 Most Successful Young People under 30’ List. In 2020 E-fásli won the national startup competition organized by the Budapest Public Foundation for Enterprise Business Development. In addition to her professional accolades, Melinda has also traveled the world, embodied kindness and empathy in all aspects of life, and trail blazed a path for other young women to create successful businesses of their own. She’s unbelievably excited to work with our gifted and talented students and help them be the best versions of themselves.
