Episode Description

When it comes to thinking about college it is pressure cooker stress time! Whether you’re a high school senior getting ready to fill out those college apps, or whether you’ve still got some time on your hands, our hosts, Asya Gonzalez and Henna Hundal, along with our savvy reporters, Caiseen Kelley, Nicole Eubanks, and Caie Kelley guide you smoothly through the challenges. Techie Caiseen helps you navigate the juggling act with apps for your phone and computer. Health Beat reporter, Nicole, tackles stress and eases your frustrations with the information that there is something for everyone, so just chill. Veteran of the application madness, Caie Kelley, is on her way to Harvard this fall. She provides inside tips on how to just be your best self, write great essays, choose an appropriate school that fits who you are, consider the location, weather, courses taught, and, in the end, know that everything is going to turn out all right. Henna spent six weeks at the University of California at Davis this past summer living in the dorm while taking college classes so she feels prepared to leave the nest, although wonders if her parents are ready for the change. Asya’s dream college would be Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise in Los Angeles, but she lives in Colorado and wonders if she can juggle her company, Stinky Feet Gurlz, from California. Lots of food for thought with a talented group of young ladies on the verge of the next chapter in their young lives. Think College-Wise! And congratulations to everyone involved with Be the Star You Are!® 501 c3 charity. Today, September 9th, is our 15th Anniversary. Find out more at
