“We think we know who we are in high school, but once you get to COLLEGE it is almost like a completely new lens for looking at life and looking at YOURSELF.” – Rwanda Carter
Many students work very hard in high school to earn their diplomas and receive acceptance letters from the colleges of their choice. But once they enter college, a whole new world full of fast paced energy awaits them. Listen to my insightful interview with one of my dear mentees, who recently graduated Magna Cum Laude from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and a Minor in American Studies! Rwanda Carter, an offspring of immigrant parents who instilled the importance of education in her household, maximized her college experience by taking advantage of various opportunities on campus. As an honor society member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS), she received academic scholarships and access to numerous internships. Rwanda also served as an active board member for the campus organization, SisterTalk, which allowed her to develop as an individual who was seeking to positively impact her community. Through her studies abroad in South Africa and her participation in leadership conferences, she was able to take advantage of all the opportunities her university provided, while excelling academically. I think you will enjoy this interview and will want to share it with your college bound daughter!
