The online panel will be split into three parts, a presenation from a former admissions officer on tips on how to get into your dream university, a student panel from current POC students as well as a final free and interactive Q&A session, where they will be answering your most urgent questions!

On Sunday 24th October 1-2pm EDT, we will host our online panel via zoom

Some topics include:

- Lecture and Q&A session with panelists of event

- Student life and experiences as a POC student applying to university

- Going through the general admissions process as well

- Tips on writing admissions related materials + general advices!

We ask for phone numbers to let you know if there are any last-minute changes due to tech issues!

OpportuniTeens (@opportuni_teens) aims to provide teens with information regarding internships, college readiness programs, and other opportunities. These various opportunities are researched and compiled by us in hopes of helping all students to find jobs where they can develop relevant skills in their future college majors/jobs.

Detester Magazine (@detestermagazine) has a similar mission: a youth-led nonprofit platform dedicated to amplifying people of color youth activism and socio-political issues. We truly believe that art and writing are powerful mediums for change. We want to advocate issues that affect people of color communities around the globe, whether it concerns politics, society, culture, mental health, environment, and etc. We aim to push past the endless single stories to deliver a picture that expresses distilled human emotions and diverse perspectives.
