Rachel Johnson, Founder and President of New Ambitions, recently spoke to a vibrant and ambitious group of scholars who have been selected to join New York University with an esteemed honor.
NYU Scholars' Weekend hosts a series of events for a diverse group of admitted students who are also recipients of one of NYU's most prestigious scholarships (including the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. award). The scholars were selected from NYU's applicant pool (over 60,000 applicants this year!) and, in terms of their outstanding academic and personal achievements are the most dynamic, diverse and talented of NYU's admitted students.
Rest assured, colleges and universities across the country are competing for this group of scholars to join their educational organization.
Ms. Johnson participated in the NYU Scholars' Alumni Panel and reflected on her experiences at NYU as an MLK Scholar, the experiences that the scholars program provided, and the lessons that shaped her professional path. Above all, she advised the prospective scholars on how to maximize their education and how to choose an academic setting that cultivates their ambitions.
At New Ambitions, we know that a quality education teaches you that there is always something new to learn and that the journey is just as important as the place of arrival.
