My client, a senior, knew what she wanted to do, but when this pandemic hit, she started questioning everything. Will she even be able to go to college after she graduates? Should she continue with her chosen major or is it changing too much leaving no jobs for her? What will her future look like?
She went from excited about her life to anxious and unsure. She was so at a loss, so overwhelmed, she would barely talk to her parents.
That is until her parents found the Life Quest program. Rather than being stuck not knowing what life would look like after high school, she now has multiple paths that she is excited about. With the program and our coaching, she has thoroughly explored how to monetize her passions even during or after a pandemic. She even has things she can start doing right away to get things in motion. And she has a game plan for her next steps in spite of how crazy the world is right now. She said:
“It’s nice having someone else there helping you make decisions and figure out what it is you can do during this pandemic. You still have to do the work, you still have to work it out for yourself but Life Quest gives you a guide. I wouldn’t have known where to start.” Also, “It opened my ideas to things I didn’t think I could do. I still want to go to college next year if it’s possible, but there’s a lot of other cool things you can do outside of that! Knowing there are other options is really helpful.”
“When I get scared of something, or when I have a bad feeling about something, I put off doing it. But doing this has made me feel a lot more comfortable with going through the college process, just the steps of applying to college. It’s easier to think about my future now. It’s helpful to talk to someone about it. But it’s comforting to know someone else is there and helping me through this. It’s been super positive and I honestly can’t say I wouldn’t have gotten to all of this by myself.”
