Episode Description

Through any challenging time, there is light at the end of the tunnel. We can’t always see it, but there is hope. For the graduating class of 2020, their school life ended abruptly with hopes of still having that prom, celebratory awards night, and the culminating graduation ceremony out on a beautiful green lawn or football field with screaming fans in the crowd. But that was not to be. And while the Class of 2021 awaits their turn at a senior year, they are left wondering, what will normal look like and what does this mean for me as I apply to college. Today I’m answering those questions. I recently hosted an evening for one of my partner schools, Bishop Amat High School. I gave Parents my insights, predictions, and tips and strategies on how to move forward and get ahead in this process. Parents left comments about how helpful and valuable it was, so I thought I would share it with all of you!!
