“Looking at me, people don’t expect a lot,” Remi says. “I want to prove them wrong.” In this program, a career specialist and a life coach advise Remi to base a profession on her interests and aptitudes rather than aiming for medical school largely to impress others. After investigating the day-to-day duties of a speech therapist, an editor for a French-language tourist guide, and an assistant in an Oxfam shop, the teen decides to follow up on her fascination with foreign languages—something she’d never thought of as a practical course of study. Remi is ready to enroll in college as a French major, leaning toward a position with an international charity, but confident of the many professional options for someone with a language degree.
