When you look at a picture like this, what is your first thought? Pretty? Funny? Happy? Maybe some other nice adjective? I can tell you one thing for sure. Those words never went through my head when I was younger. Whether looking at a picture of myself like the one above or just seeing myself in the mirror, the words that always traveled through my head were things like ugly, worthless, small, stupid and crazy.

/

Around this time of the year, our students from all over the world begin to plan summer vacation. "What to do" is the question many ask. This blog post helps students take a look at travel as a learning experience instead of vacations. Don't get us wrong, sometimes we all need a vacation and a break away from studying can serve us well. Sometimes, however, we can dig deep into our travel to enhance our lives beyond what vacationing can offer.

Student Voice: My Ancestors Live in Me

Hi! My name is Zenya and I am seventeen years old. My dream is to become a professional ballet dancer. My mom took me to my first ballet class when I was four years old. When I took my first class I knew that this was what I wanted to do the rest of my life. Many people laughed at me and asked how a four year old could know what career they want. But so far I have still kept striving toward this dream that I wanted since I was four.

Student Voice: What's it like as a First Year Student at Online School? Just ask Zenya

Your voice as a student, a member of society, and and individual doesn’t just mean the ability to make choices or to speak, it also means self expression in general. A voice doesn’t have to be one that is audible, it can be a story or message in the form of paint on canvas, written and shown on posters or billboards, shown through dance or music, and written in books and poetry. Of course it can also be spoken, as well, for those that prefer speaking. Once you find your preferred way, or ways, of voice you can try to configure that in your dream career, use it to open possible activities or dreams for the future, and can open your mind to how you can better express yourself in your life.
