Despite graduating at the top of my high school class, I was totally lost, unmotivated, and confused when I started college. After struggling through my own college experience I went to work supporting first-year students from around the world through their time in college. I learned that the key to a successful and fulfilling experience isn’t natural talent or exceptional intelligence, but a strong understanding of why you’re in college and what you hope to gain from the experience.
Each week I share expert advice, strategy, and insights to help you choose a major that actually matches you, improve academic performance, get organized, manage stress, and maximize all the amazing opportunities available during and after the college experience on the Collegehood Advice podcast.
I’m here to help you smoothly transition into college, then use the experience to create the successful and rewarding life you dream of. I deeply believe that a clear understanding of yourself coupled with intentional action can transform your life from blah to meaningful no matter who you are and where you come from.
