🌟 Global Village Grad Spotlight: Renzo Conquers First Year at Camosun! 🌟

Renzo Rojas Bonilla (Post-Grad Diploma in Business Administration at Camosun College) is crushing his academic journey from Peru to Canada! 🇵🇪🇨🇦 While the first semester was challenging, Renzo adapted, improved his grades in the spring, and aims for that A in the fall! 🎯 Here are his wise words for future GV Pathway students:

📅 Master Your Time: Create a schedule and stick to it! Prioritize tasks and manage them effectively.
🍎 Balance is Key: Nourish your body with healthy food, exercise, and good sleep. A healthy you is a successful you!
🧘 Mindfulness Matters: Start your day with meditation and gratitude. It helps put things in perspective.
🚀 Enjoy the Ride: Success takes time, so savor the journey and learn from every step.
📚 Practice Makes Perfect: Read daily and actively engage with native speakers to enhance your vocabulary and fluency.
💪 Never Give Up! Challenges will come, but remember, others have overcome them, and so can you! Be confident!

We're so proud of Renzo and all our GV Pathway students who return to share their inspiring stories. We create a supportive environment where you can learn, grow, and thrive. Here's to continued success in your studies and summer jobs! ☀️ See you soon! 🌟

Global Village Alumni Spotlight!

This week, we caught up with Juan de Dios, a Global Village Victoria graduate (summer 2023) who is now pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration and Sustainability at Royal Roads University!
He loves the beautiful campus's supportive environment and ample opportunities for focused study. 

Royal Roads is known for its project-based learning; Juan's experience reflects that. He collaborates with his team on real-world projects with local businesses, honing his presentation skills!

Juan's Top Tips for Future RRU Students:

- Master Time Management: Weekly deadlines require strong organization, find a balance with your schoolwork. Don't fall behind in your assignments!

- Sharpen Your Academic Writing: Proficiency in APA referencing is key.

- Boost Your English Skills: All crucial is reading, listening, and speaking.

"The transition from GV to university is challenging, but it prepares you for the real world," says Juan. He emphasizes the importance of being ready for education in a new language and acknowledges the valuable preparation he received at GV.

Thanks, Juan! We wish you continued success in your program and a well-deserved summer break!
