☑️ Bored during class?
☑️ Unsure of your future job options?
☑️ Disconnected from the real world?
ME TOO. BUT WE HAVE A SOLUTION.
Hi, I’m Yui, a high school student at an international school in Hong Kong.
I’ve always been a motivated student at school, putting forth my best efforts to ace my tests and take comprehensive notes during class. But at one point, I questioned – how does this all connect to my future?
I had a vague understanding of how the material covered in my math or humanities class would make me “college and career ready”; but what skills are truly valued in the workplace? What even are my job options? I felt distant and protected from the real world, in a privileged bubble of naivety and safety nets. High school merely feels like a roadmap towards college – but what for? What happens after college, and how can I best prepare for my uncertain future?
I’m sure we’ve all felt this nagging discontent with our education system, but we see no clear solution as to how we can make it better.
