I spent Thursday at Staten Island Technical High School speaking at the Backpacks to Briefcases lunch and learn. It was amazing. As I arrived, the first thing I saw was this:
"...This week, Lisa Vento Nielsen, an expert on college and career readiness, will be speaking about becoming an entreptreprenuer..."
Wow. Just wow. It is amazing - I am a college and career readiness expert - the Staten Island Advance called me the "sure footed Sherpa for youth" and I do have 3 books published - two of which are specifically about college and career readiness and the other although geared towards older professionals could definitely give the younger starting out professional a huge leg up on the competition. (Learn more at my Amazon Author Page).
The staff and administrators I met at Staten Island Tech on Thursday were all amazing and focused on helping their students be ready for both college and career.
The students were engaging and curious - I got asked tons of great questions and really enjoyed sharing my expertise, books and lessons with them and I look forward to sharing more in the near future at Staten Island Technical High School.
For Friday, I will be at my alma mater St John Villa Academy representing my company at the college fair and sharing my books and lessons with the juniors.
Talk about coming home - I graduated from Villa in 1994 so 22 years later to be there as an expert to share my lessons and company is just amazing. I will post more about that next week!
