The Winterline Global Skills Gap Year Program travels to 10 different countries over 9 months, where students learn 100 new life skills while traveling the world with their best friends.
Thinking about taking a gap year too?
THE CONCEPT OF A GAP YEAR PROGRAM IS STILL NEW FOR MANY STUDENTS. WHEN WERE YOU FIRST INTRODUCED TO THE IDEA OF TAKING A GAP YEAR?
I’ve heard of the idea in high school when I learned about alternatives to going straight to college.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO TAKE A GAP YEAR?
It seemed like the perfect opportunity to learn more outside the classroom setting and to learn about yourself.
WHAT SKILL ARE YOU MOST EXCITED TO LEARN?
I am most excited to learn circus skills because it seems intriguing and so different from all the others.
DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO IN THE FUTURE?
I am leaning towards doing international work either in a business or diplomatic setting.
HAVE YOU TRAVELED BEFORE? IF SO, WHICH TRIP HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE AND WHY?
I have traveled to many European countries and places within the US. My favorite trip has to be to Alaska because the environment and wildlife are so unique and the Northern Lights were amazing.
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TO GAIN FROM YOUR GAP YEAR PROGRAM AND WHILE TRAVELING ABROAD?
I want to come from this with many great experiences and memories along with growth and skills I would not have been able to get anywhere else.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WANT YOUR FUTURE WINTERLINE PEERS TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I might seem reserved at first but I warm up quickly. I love to goof around and blast music and dance.
Winterline has the length and structure I wanted out of a gap year. It really ties together all the traveling and skills I’m looking for.
TELL US SOMETHING FUN ABOUT YOU!
I can tie a cherry stem in my mouth.
