Parent of an IBDP Student
As we transition my son from The Red Pen’s Mentorship Program to the Undergraduate Application Program, I would like to thank The Red Pen for creating and executing the timely and useful mentorship program for young university aspirants. We were on the lookout for a system that motivates, nurtures and empowers our son to identify and prepare him for the challenges coming towards him in the near future. The Red Pen’s Mentorship Program did that and how! From throwing our 16-year-old into the deep end and encouraging him to travel to and stay on his own in France to chucking him into a Mumbai local to attend his weekly science lab and introducing him to university level essay writing to writing code for projects, the mentorship program has constantly challenged him to be open to the wonders that await him. The Red Pen also encouraged him to intern at a design studio while seeking his Ikigai with like-minded souls. Not surprisingly, the mentorship program has rubbed off on me too! Last year I completed the French language course I always wanted to learn and finally mustered the courage to join Toastmasters to improve my public speaking. Thank you to the Early Advising team for always being there, hearing him out and guiding him at all the critical junctures. Our consultant’s kind, mentoring and positive strategies to track his academic progress are working wonders. We are looking forward to working with The Red Ped in the coming months as our son works on his college applications.
