Meet the Intern: Sabrina

Sabrina pic.jpgI had the pleasure of meeting Sabrina Schultz last September following a speaking engagement. As we talked, she explained that she was vice president of the CSBSJU Marketing Club and asked if I would consider taking on some interns to help market my book.

Well, as they say, the rest is history. Thanks to Sabrina’s persuasive pitch, we now have a Radi to Write intern team!

Sabrina is a natural-born leader. She’s patient, practical and responsible. She knows when to delegate and how to empower the team.

As a college senior, she brings experience and perspective on the joys and challenges of university life. Read on to learn her advice for parents as they prepare to launch their students.

Area of study: Global Business Leadership Major, Writing Minor

Clubs & extracurriculars: Marketing Club and Bonner Leader

Fun fact about you: I can play 4 different instruments.

Best thing(s) your parent(s) did to help you as you started your freshman year:
To help me start my freshman year my parents helped me move in and purchased many of the things I needed for college! The best thing my parents bought me was a Keruig, which I use almost every day! They also would call me every couple of weeks to make sure everything was going well.

Best item(s) to receive in a care package:
The best items to receive in a care package for me were notes from my parents, chocolate, snacks, popcorn and some awesome movies!

What suggestions do you have for today’s PARENTS as they face the high school-to-college transition?
I would say let your children figure things out on their own. Have them pick their own schedules, have them help with the FAFSA and let them apply to colleges on their own. Let them be as independent as they can, but remember to check in occasionally! They’ll need some encouraging and reminding them how much you love them.
