It’s important to do what you love and love what you do with your time. In high school that perhaps means being on a sports team, a member of a club, or maybe get active in your student government. All very, very good thing (especially if you love doing them). But, then for some, “doing what they love” can mean getting involved in some really out of the ordinary activities, which are always exciting and interesting to hear about.
Take Jonathan Yan and Zak Kukoff of Westlake Village, CA who I came across today on The Choice. These two high schoolers have built a business in their spare time to help schools reduce truancy (possible SAT word there…it means “intentionally being absent at school”). The company is Truant Today and is certainly one of the cooler recent out-of-school activities that we’ve heard of high schoolers doing. Starting a business and going to school full-time…sounds intense, but I’m sure quite fun too. Check the infographic about the habits and life of young and rich entrepreneurs.
Are you involved in any out of the ordinary activities (either in or out of school)? If so, we’d love to hear a bit more about your experience.
