If you listened to the last episode featuring just-graduated-high-school-Adam, be prepared to teleport 3 years into the future and meet almost-graduated-college-Adam!
He's the same focused, dedicated student he always has been and he's back to share a great deal of insight for other students who are getting ready to head off to college for the first time.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
After graduating from New York University with her B.F.A. in Theater, Lauren moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. To make time for auditions during the day, she called upon her academic roots from her high school days and began tutoring the ACT and SAT.
She quickly fell in love - not with the exams, but with the feeling that she was helping students put their feet on a firm path towards a big, bright future.
(Ok, maybe she fell a little bit in love with the exams too. Her dad didn't nickname her #2 Pencil Nerd for nothing.)
After 7 years working as an in-home tutor with a large test prep firm and then in her own independent tutoring company, Lauren distilled her experiences into the 4 different ACT & SAT prep programs that are now available through her company, Higher Scores Test Prep.
Lauren's love of teaching and compassion for what students are facing in today's complex, competitive college admissions landscape allows her to bring a little bit of calm to her corner of the college admissions process.
While Adam's clarity of purpose is admirable, it can also be intimidating. It can be hard to decide what to focus on and pursue.
In my 13+ years working with college-bound high school students, I've watched many struggle to articulate their Big Why.
It's a challenging and daunting task. But I also know that more students are capable of finding their Big Why than currently do. We all have the potential to find our perfect path to fulfillment and deserve to have the resources to discover it.
That's why I created my new program: Big Why Life.
If your future feels murky, it won't become more clear by simply soldiering on. Uncertainty begs us to take a step back and to create space reflection. If you're ready to gain clarity and find your best path forward, I'd like to invite you to join my next cohort of Big Why Life.
