5 Things Every Student Should Do This Summer

Summer is a great opportunity for students to figure out what they are good at, what they love, and what they want to do in the future.


Therefore, my advice to all students would be:

1. Make a summer plan. Ask yourself questions like: “Do I want to work this summer?”, “Do I want to learn something new?”, “Do I need a mentor?”, “Am I going to be doing the same thing all summer, or different things?”. Remember, there are no correct or incorrect answers. It’s completely up to you!

2. Find a mentor, someone you think you would enjoy being like in some way. It could be a teacher, boss, tutor, coach etc. Students who connect with empowering adults outside of their families usually are less reckless and more focused on what really matters. A good mentor would encourage any skills and hobbies a student may have, and help to develop new ones.

3. Volunteer. I believe volunteering can make you a strong job candidate after graduation.

4. Organize something fun with people you have something in common with. For example, a bike ride will be fun, interesting, and could even be an educational experience.

5. Take a quick flight somewhere new and exciting. Flights, especially last-minute deals, can be so cheap! I promise you it will be the best thing you ever do in terms of finding out about yourself and what you want in life.

Enjoy your summer!
