When I was in high school, I was clueless about the college admissions journey. Until one day, I met my mentor, who changed my life. She showed me what was possible, identified my weakness and strengths, provided me with all the resources that I needed. Most importantly, this mentor truly cared about my education and aspirations.
15 years later, I am now a mentor guiding my wonderful high school students identify their interests and passion, strategizing college admissions plans, and helping them gain clarity and confidence in the most vulnerable and important years of their lives.
In this episode, I’m sharing with you how having a mentor will benefit your high school teen and how it has changed my life, personally and academically.
