Eseoghene from Nigeria, has embarked on a transformative journey at EF Academy. Her story is a testament to the power of international education in shaping young minds and preparing them for a diverse and interconnected world.
Eseoghene's path to EF Academy was marked by guidance and support from her counselors, who are helping her find the college that resonates with her interests and passions. She shared, "My university advisors help to guide me on the path to finding the college that is the right fit for me. My university counselor questions me on my interests and my passions so they’ll be able to know my interests and guide me to a university that I would love."
One of the most striking aspects of Eseoghene's EF Academy experience is the dynamic and unconventional teaching style that promotes independent learning and responsibility.
"My EF Academy experience is totally different from my old school. EF Academy teaches students to be responsible for their own learning...This type of teaching method helps us grasp information that will stay with us and not just surface learning."
Eseoghene also highlighted the practical approach to education at EF Academy, where students are encouraged to apply their knowledge to real-life situations. She recounted her experiences, saying, "We often get a chance to practice what we are learning using practicals in class or labs. In my precalculus class, we were throwing a baseball to calculate its speed, this was a very captivating way of learning parametric equations."
In addition to the innovative academic environment, Eseoghene found herself engaged in unique and enriching extracurricular activities. She shared her enthusiasm, "I love participating in extracurricular activities like my pickleball club because it keeps me active. I’m in the pickleball club because I wanted to stay active and fit. I’m in Model UN because I love debating."
Eseoghene's journey wasn't without its challenges, but the EF Academy community provided the necessary support. She revealed, "I received support from the staff on campus. At the beginning of the year, I had problems making friends, and I talked to my house parent about it in a one-on-one meeting, and she encouraged me to talk to more people."
