The college application process could be challenging, complicated and stressful, or it could be one of the most profound, revealing, and empowering processes in a young person’s life. It is my hope that the student learns about their strengths, gains newfound confidence in their path, and thrives in this important process and life decision. I hope they will make the right decision as to where they end up in the fall. Best of luck!
Student Success Stories
As an advisor to startups in tech for over 5 years, I have mentored many (aspiring) entrepreneurs. One of the most fulfilling aspects of my role is to empower these entrepreneurs and tech workers to gain confidence in their newfound path.
I remember coaching these entrepreneurs on mindset – from giving them meditations to do, to have them attend weeklong leadership retreats. I watched many of them blossom as they hired their first leadership team or head of growth/product. I coached many of them through their first fundraisers.
Now, I feel lucky to continue to do so in Vietnam – as both a startup advisor and College Compass counselor – to empower the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs.
