Shawn Childs

Global Gap Year 2010
“I felt much more prepared and invested in my college courses than many of my peers. TBB taught me to take an active role in my education and to be an advocate for myself. I was able to relate to the information on a much more practical, realistic level. I sought out classes that had a reputation for being more focused on student-involvement and steered away from larger, lecture style-courses. This is a bit of advice that I would pass on to anyone entering college as it’s by far the best way to feel comfortable with and fully understand the relevance of the information being taught, as well as becoming more confident in yourself.”

Janet Childs, Mother of Shawn

Global Gap Year 2010
“Shawn’s priorities in college are much more focused than most college freshmen’s. She met with advisors repeatedly to pinpoint the most efficient path to achieving her major and minors all within 3 1/2 years.”
