Other ways to listen

We are excited to introduce this week’s guest, Robin Schaffer, a native of Belize.  She is only 26 years old, but she has already gained more experience than many people three times her age!

Robin has lived on three continents and speaks four languages.  She has a wealth of professional work experience and is a recent graduate of Oxford University where she just completed her master’s degree.

In today’s episode we discuss how to go from being a mediocre student in middle school and high school to turning that ship around and excelling at the highest level. 

Robin talks about how she found her passion and pursued her dreams and went after her goals.  We also talk about how she went from attending a junior college in Belize, to Ming Chuan University in Taiwan, to ultimately receiving her master’s degree from Oxford University.  And now she has goals to pursue a PhD in the U.S.

We learn how Robin has accomplished so much at such a young age. We also talk about the application process of applying to an elite university; she shares tips on how to gain admission.

Robin also shares how to apply for scholarships that will fund your education.  Robin has shared this information to help others that need the financial assistance just as she did.

Robin was a delightful and inspirational guest.  We hope you enjoy this interview as much as we did!
