Episode #45: [Student Interview] How My Student (Christina) Started and Scaled Her Passion Project

Are you doing a bunch of different things and getting overwhelmed by what’s on your plate? In this episode of Demystifying College Admissions, I will be interviewing my student, Christina, about how she discovered a common theme to her long list of extracurriculars, consolidated her energy into one passion project, and then scaled it. Tune in to hear Christina’s zeal and dedication that will inspire/motivate you to start your own passion project.

Through this project, I’m putting action behind those words.
I think I gained a lot of self-esteem.
But right now, you can be the living proof that you can push for the changes that you wish to see in this world.
You pushed me to my full potential.
