Break your boundries
on September 27, 2009
The New Global Student is a great book that inspires you to forget fears and step out into exciting world of opportunity. Many times we are paralyzed with doubt and uncertainty, believing that a global experience will be too dangerous or what we won't be able to handle the pressures. Maya Frost deals with these issues saying that the emotion cost is real, you have to let go and you will have difficultly, but the overwhelming majority of people who take that leap of faith land and say, "That was so worth it." She also gives great tips as to how to get ahead of the game and snagging extra college credit to enter college as a sophomore or even a junior at age 18.
Currently I am 22 years old and a college student at a private institution in Michigan. Though this book is geared for High School students and their parents, it is a great resource for anyone. I was shocked to find out that when I was dealing tired of High School and desperately wanted to get out after my junior year, but was stuck finishing out an almost pointless year, I had other options. I could have skipped my senior year and been catapulted into a more rewarding college experience. Thankfully, Frost's advice doesn't stop for High School students. The stories she shared of other students who cross the American board into the great beyond have blown away my fear of the unknown and made me hungry for a global challenge. Now, largely because of her book, I am getting ready for a semester abroad in South Korea.
Whether you are a Middle School, High School, or College age student, or a parent you have a lot to benefit from by reading this book. Don't get stuck in the herd but be inspired to break ranks and fly by reading Maya Frost's "The New Global Student".
