About the Author
Monika Lutz redefined the gap year to include professional, academic, and personal pursuits in addition to travel. She is currently working towards an undergraduate degree in government with a double minor in Mandarin Chinese and general management from Harvard University Extension School where she is the first female vice president of the student association and an elected board member for the prestigious Harvard Cooperative Society. Monika attended high school in Boulder, Colorado where she was the Head Girl (student body co-president), a varsity lacrosse player, a National Honor Society club executive, and earned her International Baccalaureate Degree with a perfect score in economics. Monika has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Time, Fox News, and Glamour. Her own writing has been published in USA Today, The Colorado Daily, Pink Pangea and many more.

If life has kicked you in the teeth, or you don’t know what to do next, a little dose of “Now What?” might be just what the doctor ordered. The book is well written and fun to read. I couldn’t put it down as I wanted to know what new discovery Monika would make next. If you are thinking about a gap year, you will be inspired by her story. This is a good example of the old saying, “Every cloud has a silver lining.”
Lutz makes even her impossibly varied resume seem attainable with enough gumption--we see her writing and rewriting resumes, reaching out to every last contact, and persuading reluctant interviewers to give her a shot. Any reader would be inspired by Lutz's story that begins with failure and ends with undeniable success--but only after a long road marked by determination, hard work, disappointment, and, occasionally, serendipity. Lutz's combination of frankness and charm makes her an ideal voice to share these unique experiences and inspire her readers to take ownership of their futures. "What Next?" deserves 5 stars out of 5.
