Happy new year! I haven’t been this excited for a new year in a long time. Before we get to the good stuff coming this year, here’s a quick recap of 2021. It was not the year I had planned for, but it ended up being full of pleasant surprises. 


In 2021…

  • Our training team made up of seasoned international educators from all areas of the field taught over 65 students in our Global Pro Labs. In these Labs, we teach you how to do the work of international education: international student advising, international admissions and recruitment, study abroad advising, program design and delivery, and modern marketing. 
  • We taught and coached 25 students in the Global Pro Institute AND placed 17 people in remote internships across the industry - at program providers, global non-profits, colleges, and universities in all areas of international education. 
  • I did speaking engagements at Auburn University, the GAP Year Association, and the Global Leadership League

Of course, this year wasn’t all roses and sunshine. It had a LOT of challenges that come with running a global education company in the middle of a global pandemic. 

If you want to hear more about those challenges, check out the video below (or on the Brazenist podcast here).

Hopefully I’ll be seeing and meeting many of you in person at Forum, NAFSA, or some other event very soon.
