You Gave Great Advice, We Gave $250!

Graduate Advice Contest We have received some excellent advice from you to pass along to the class of 2014 graduates! We have no doubt that our recent international student graduates are more than prepared to take the next step in life. Although it was not an easy task to pick just one winner for the advice for graduates contest, it was finally narrowed down!

The lucky winner of a $250 Amazon gift card is:
Sarah Hong from Ann Arbor, MI

Check out Sarah’s inspiring advice:

"You Are Not An Imposter. Many times, students, especially those who are high achievers, have the 'Imposter Syndrome'; sometimes they are unable to internalize their accomplishments, and think that they do not deserve the opportunities they are given (eg. work, scholarship, awards). Believe in yourself. You deserve everything and you have earned everything. Especially as an international student, you have outdone yourself and sought out the education you wanted. Now take everything you've learned and change the world. You can do it.”

Congrats Sarah!

A World of Support

It’s important to have a community to turn to when studying abroad since not everyone can understand the roller coaster ride of being an international student. Sure your friends back home are happy for you and your parents slip extra money into your bank account- but you also need somewhere to turn to get the kind of help they can’t provide you. Our international student forum gives you the chance to find that community and get the advice you need along the way. If you haven’t already, you might want to stop by and say hello.
