We take our once-in-a-lifetime decisions quite randomly*.
We empower the youth to consciously** pursue their career & academic paths.
*Randomly: During our school & university years, we run into 2–3 people, usually a relative or an inspirational teacher, who act as our role models who we want to become “when we grow up”. We do not have exposure to the full spectrum of options that will allow us to try different aspects of our special inclinations & talents. By excluding a wide range of alternatives our decisions are limited to a sample of options, usually not selected by us.
**Consciously: We increase the number from 2–3 to 50–100 role models that the students select & meet during an academic year. We have built a safe, non-intimidating environment where students, teachers & parents set the agenda of the meetings with professionals worldwide who interact with the students through live video, from the convenience of their desks, at their working environments or at their universities.
