🌟 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! 🌟
