As a child, I loved geography and maps. The idea of getting lost in the world fascinated me.
I remember being 10 years old when my dad bought me this really cool map for Christmas one year that showed all these different regions from around the world on it – mountains, deserts, plains… It’s still hanging up over there by my desk now!
Have you ever tried to learn a new location within your own city? There are clear maps that show the most efficient routes and, when it comes down to it, Google Maps is usually sufficient. But what about other countries where I know absolutely nothing of the layout or streets names? That’s why Paul James created “Maps Mentor 2.0.” This app provides directions in over 130 languages and includes basic information like currency rates for international travelers as well!

The interactive elements within Paul’s mentorship programs will not only help you gain valuable professional insight but also teach you new ways of navigating life’s challenges which we can
A map is a guide for navigating the world. I’ve never met anyone who has ever found their way without one, so it stands to reason that those of us in charge should provide maps! Maps Mentor 2.0 was created with this idea at its core; we want every student and educator to have access to high-quality resources about how they can navigate through school pathways–whatever path they choose!
