Today I’m speaking with Jane Stine, the Managing Director of Loop Abroad, a program that focuses on high school students studying abroad with a particular focus on Animal Sciences. Studying abroad is a wonderful choice for those who are interested in it, but as we discuss– it’s all about how you grow and transform from your experiences that truly make you stand out in the competitive college admissions journey.
Not only did we discuss studying abroad, but Jane and I go in depth on the stress surrounding college admissions, activities you participate in during high school that can help cultivate your passions, ways to look for diversity within your own community, and advice on projects that are perfectly tailored for you.
TUNE IN BELOW:
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:
- Why Jane thinks studying abroad is important and how it can impact your future
- Jane’s advice for students on the fence about a particular major or career
- The importance of the “why” factor
- How crucial it is that you shadow and interview professionals in their respective fields
- Action steps you can take to engage in diversity within your own community
“We all go to schools that talk about diversity… but really the way you learn about diversity is that you work with people who are different from you.”
“There’s nothing wrong with not knowing what you want to be in 10 years… that shouldn’t make any students feel bad.”
“You shouldn’t be choosing your activities based off of what will get you into college.”
“When your teenagers say ‘This is really hard’, just say, ‘Yeah. It’s really, really hard. We’re so proud of you.’”
