The intensive I’m blogging about is called “Learning to Live. Living to Learn.” It’s one of the many intensives school is offering to students. Clarissa and I went to check out this intensive to see what the students are doing on the last day. The week of the intensive was mostly spent on them visiting colleges and trying to figure out what career they would like to pursue.
They went to visit SUNY Center, New Community College, St. Joseph’s College, and Pratt Institute. After four days of visiting, now have time to sit down and research carrers in depth. While I was there, I sort of interviewed Jazmine and Sharon about what they were doing. Jazmine said she would like to become a veterinarian and Sharon said she wants to become a chef. Jazmine said to Sharon, “You better become a chef so you can come to my house and cook food!” Both of them are still looking at the colleges they’d like to attend. Jazmine has Brooklyn College in mind and Sharon is looking at Montclair State University although she is still not decided.
With all the traveling around colleges this week one thing is for sure: Study hard and you will be rewarded with being able to go to College/University of your dreams!
