At 17 years old it is difficult to try and determine what you want to do with the rest of your life. When you are nearing the end of your high school years it becomes more important to try and fit the classes in that won't limit your post secondary education classes.
The one thing Brittany my oldest daughter has a desire for is to model and the dream to one day live in New York City NY. Together we watch America's Next Top Model and Canada's Next Top Model. So one night Brittany started looking into Modeling schools in Saskatchewan. Well she found one agency located in Regina that will be having a one day modeling session. Sort of an introduction to the world of modeling. We have sent an email to register her, now we are just waiting for confirmation that she will have a spot in the class. Regina isnt' that far to drive and it will be a good way for her to find out more about something that she is so interested in.
This morning Brittany told me of something she would like to do after she graduates from high school. Something that I would never have expected. She is thinking she would like to travel abroad and teach English as a second language. She knows a girl through her best friend that is doing this. I found a class through the U of S that offers a one month course for just this thing. She is going to look into this with her school and with this girl she knows.
Like Brittany says I can't just hope to be a model, I have to have a back up plan as well. Teaching English as a second language will be a great way to experience another culture. I am glad that she is setting some goals for her future and starting to plan out a start to her future.
