At 6:45 pm on April 8th, 2016, we kicked off the second meeting of The Champ Camp. Over 15 high schoolers attended dressed in their best business attire.
As they entered, the students chose to sit next to the familiar faces. Towards the end of the meeting, Mr. Usmani asked everyone to count off from 1 to 3, assigning each student a number. This exercise grouped them into a new arrangement so that they could work in a new environment, simulating a real life situation.
The students were asked to contemplate the difference between ordinary and extraordinary. Each group performed a skit exemplifying these terms and what it meant in the workplace.
Later, the speaker, Dr. Farrukh Sair, discussed a day in the life of a anesthesiologist. He explained that the best part of his job was to take away people's pain. He, however, revealed that his job has high levels of stress.
The next speakers, Lori Love and Sarah Morrison, discussed the requirements of becoming a real estate agent in North Carolina. They further shared the importance of having good credit starting from the first year of college onward.
Overall, everyone left energized, making new friends and looking forward to registering for next month's event with former NFL player London Fletcher & CEO Tehseen Dahya. We are expecting a full house!
