Hi F,
Asking about mentors is a great question.
Everyone I know talks about finding mentors. There is so much anxiety on this topic too. "I want to learn it all now, Hurry up, don't slow me down". Most people I know have some very strict learning criteria, too.

I am starting to view it in the same way that most people have/find "friends". In uni, I used to study with 3-6 people off and on. Some knew the subjects more than me and others not so much. But I learned from everyone at some point.

Finding a mentor is like finding a friend. The best friends are far and few, just like mentors.
Keep looking.
