No matter what your future looks like, HAP will give you the skills and the knowledge for you to succeed and most importantly stand out, in your future endeavors.


My views:


I have personally been a part of the HAP for a few months and the opportunities are endless. When I am older I’m not looking into going into entrepreneurship but I would love to go into law. I have seen so many great workshops that would really help me in the future to develop and gain skills for being a lawyer and for studying law itself. I am currently in the tenth grade, meaning I still have some time before I really have to start thinking about university applications, but time flies. It is also never too early to start taking these opportunities and starting early, because it gives you even more of a head start! This is the best part of the High School Ambassador program in my opinion, no matter where you want to go or what you want to do in the future, there is a resource/workshop/opportunity for everything and every interest or ambition.
