FINDING A PASSION
What are colleges looking for when they evaluate applications from high school students? One key attribute is “passionate involvement in a few activities that are meaningful.”
If you are looking for a way to help your student explore his/her interests and connect in a meaningful way to his/her passions, I have a couple of resources that might help. First, take a look at 6 Ways to Teach Teens How to Find Their True Passion, an article from Your Teen Magazine. For parents who genuinely want to help, these six ideas are easy to incorporate into family scenarios. Find the article HERE.
I find that sometimes you need a couple of sources of inspiration when trying to explore passions. TED has compiled a playlist of Talks to Help You Find Your Purpose. These eight talks will motivate and inspire people of all ages. Find the playlist HERE.
And remember: passions don’t have to be related to school or academics. My passion is gardening – fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. If you want to know why this is a meaningful activity – just ask! And if you’re interested in learning more about how I can help your student find and fund his/her ideal college experience, reach out using any of the buttons below or give me a call at 405-906-7044!
