This past weekend in Beijing, Vericant kicked off its first Summer Event of 2013. We invited Prep Beijing! to come and give a talk for students recently admitted to boarding schools overseas. The information session, titled “How to Make the Most of Your First 100 Days Overseas,” was prepared by Prep Beijing! founders Dr. Jenny Hayward and Alicia Lui. They shared insights with over 30 parents and students in attendance on what to expect of their first three months overseas and how to prepare for their upcoming transition into a new academic and social environment.
5 Essentials In this Major Transition:
- The Art of Making a Great First Impression
- Independence & Community Life
- The Emotional Journey Behind the Physical Journey
- Practical Life Skills for the New Environment
- Non-Academic Activities
Vericant co-founder Guy Sivan was also present to speak with parents and students about the journey overseas.
Guy, Jenny, and Alicia all grew up in Hong Kong and attended American private universities, and have extensive experience working and socializing in multi-cultural environments.
