How Two Envision Programs Helped This High Schooler’s College Prep - Alumni Spotlight : Tulip

Tulip is a high school senior from Hawaii who discovered her passion for international law through Envision by WorldStrides immersive programs. Tulip's interest in foreign affairs was first sparked when she attended Envision's National Security program. This catalyzed her passion and inspired her to take an Intensive Law and Trial course at Stanford the following summer. There, a mock trial experience and hands on practice further expanded her future in law. 

As Tulip shares, the active, tactile learning helped the connection between her studies and real-life experiences "click”. Now, she hopes her story will encourage other students to find their calling through an Envision experience.
