"The talk" with parent's is vital in order to consolidate possibilities and NO; it's not always what you expect or what you would want to hear the most. After putting so much effort into the academics and passions at school it may hurt or be frustrating to here that your 'dream school' may not be economically reachable or that your parents might prefer that you stayed in Lima for a while before leaving.
The truth is, I have no idea what I will study and it is extremely important to use this vacations to start investigating colleges around the world, their programs and which ones will appeal the most to my type of learning.
---------- Prioritizing is extremely important: -----------
My main goal is to have confident applications, and know, with all my heart in the moment when I send them that the choices I've taken are the best for my type of learning and passion career. Knowledge is power and having power over my own education is knowing what my chances are, what choices are out there and having clear goals.
I've already started to investigate the requirements and specific programs they have, not only I will be in the big city of my dreams where EVERYTHING happens but I will be able to meet people from all around the world, be in a campus and take a course that will hopefully clarify what path I will take leaving the school walls. I am between two programs:
- film -
- BUSINESS -
east coast - west coast?
As I was talking to my aunt the other week who also lives in San Fransico she said that she could try to talk to Google, and that, would be fascinating and an even more incredible experience. She also told me something extremely true, like me, there are hundreds of talented kids who have worked their butt off during school and are also behind that internship. It's about who can bring more to the company and the type of person you are in the work place-- you've got to be the full package.
