About one month ago, I embarked on a new professional journey—I joined the April cohort of CORe. Even though it was a no-brainer decision for me to participate in the program once I was accepted, it has certainly been a sacrifice to participate in the program. In addition to the financial sacrifice to pay the $1,500 tuition, CORe is a serious time commitment. These two things are at the front of my mind every time I log in to the platform.
I am now about 20% through the program, according to my dashboard, and am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short time. Here are a few of my thoughts on the CORe program thus far:
- One of a kind learning opportunity
- A unique community
- Time management is key
Last Saturday, I celebrated my 25th birthday. As I enter the second quarter of my life (that is, if I’m lucky enough to live to be 100), I strongly believe that my participation in CORe is helping me to build the foundations for the rest of my academic and professional career. Every time I log in to my course dashboard, begin a new module, complete a knowledge check, or answer a question on Peer Help, I know the sacrifice is worth it.
