I recently came across the following post from a young blogger, okedamilolah, and really like what she is doing. She is a real American success story, coming to the US from Nigeria with her family when she was young, working hard and finishing high school with a 4.0 grade average, honors and being named class valedictorian.
So she has decided to do a blog to help high school students better understand how to get their act together. And as you will see from the points she brings up, she is not simply telling them to study hard. She considers volunteer work to be very important and her point about being organized applies to us all.
I’m sure a lot of college students could benefit from what she is sharing. So if you know any high school or college or university students that are having trouble in their studies, you might want to direct them to okedamilolah’s blog by clicking https://schoolsavingssuccess.wordpress.com/2015/07/01/recommended-things-to-do-right-now/ .
And here is an example of her advice: 4 thoughts on “WHAT TO DO THE SUMMER BEFORE YOUR SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL”.


J’ai récemment découvert le sujet suivant d’une jeune bloggeur, okedamilolah, et j’apprécie ce qu’elle fait. Elle est un exemple vivant d’une histoire de succès américain, arrivant aux Etats-Unis du Nigeria avec sa famille quand elle était jeune, travaillant dur et terminant le lycée avec une moyenne de 20 sur 20 et major de la promotion.
Maintenant elle a décidé de faire un blogue pour aider les lycéens à mieux comprendre comment réussir. Et comme vous le verrez à partir des sujets qu’ elle partage, elle ne dit pas uniquement qu’il faut étudier sérieusement. Elle trouve qu’un travail bénévole est très important et ce qu’elle dit à propos d’être bien organisé s’applique à nous tous.
Je suis sûr que beaucoup d’étudiants de faculté pourraient bénéficier de ce qu’elle partage. Si vous connaissez des lycéens ou des étudiants de faculté ou même des étudiants d’université qui font face à des difficultés dans leurs études, dirigez-les vers le blogue d’okedamilolah en cliquant https://schoolsavingssuccess.wordpress.com/2015/07/01/recommended-things-to-do-right-now/ .
Et voici un exemple de ses conseils: 4 thoughts on “WHAT TO DO THE SUMMER BEFORE YOUR SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL.”

School. Savings. Success.

  1. Just a year ago, I was a clueless and confused rising senior. I was like you – in the hype of finally being a senior (#Classof2015). I took my first SATs in June without studying. I took it because that was what was recommended from brochures and websites (Spring/Summer of your Junior year). I received an 1800. After receiving those scores, it was as if a bucket of senior responsibilities dumped on me. I frantically began looking up scholarships, college stats, SAT and ACT tips, and even dorm supplies. After a couple hours of this, you know what happened? Yep, I became overwhelmed and ultimately gave up.

Basically take it easy, and work at your pace because it’s not hard to be discouraged (and we don’t want that now*).

  1. ENJOY your summer, yet be productive. This cannot be stressed enough. It is imperative that you do not stress yourself…
