Ivy or Intuition? Which Would You Choose?
August 29, 2018
Hosted by Dr. Cynthia Colón
Find Your Team of Supporters. Being accepted to an Ivy League doesn’t come by chance, it begins with a community of believers who push you to work hard, follow the plan, grow as a leader, and dream big. Find your team and achieve! My question this week is simple: “Are the institutions we covet the perfect choice for everyone?” If you were admitted to an Ivy institution, would you turn it down? What circumstances would make you choose otherwise? This week our guest, Julie Taylor-Vaz shares her journey to college from the Crescent City of New Orleans. Discover how Julie followed the guidance of mentors and family members, found glory in every success, and in the end, listened to her gut in choosing what would become her home for over a decade. Every success story begins with a team of supporters, village of cheerleaders, and community of believers. Hear how this Director of College Counseling found her team that helped her land at her perfect destination: YOUniversity.
Wednesday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
CALLING ALL STUDENTS, PARENTS, EDUCATORS, AND BELIEVERS!
Success doesn’t come by chance. Success is a decision to take a chance on YOU. Being admitted to the YOUniversity of your choice is a goal, but not a guarantee. Who you surround yourself with is just as important as what you do. Hear from extraordinary people who led ordinary childhoods. Each story tells the tale of finding passion, purpose, and praise from adults.
The secret to a “YES” is becoming your best YOU. Walk away with practical tips and action steps on how to go from good, better, to best and increase your chances of receiving that “YES!” If you are a student, parent of a student, teach students, or are a student of life, this show is for you!
So, what do you say? Let’s do this! Join Dr. Cynthia Colón, LIVE every Wednesday at Noon Pacific Time, 3 PM Eastern Time for Destination: YOUniversity, on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel.
