To lead the world of the future, our girls need to be big, brave and bold. They need to become comfortable with discomfort, cultivate the difficult and embrace failure. The challenge of becoming exceptional is to traverse the squiggly line.
Thinking about the future and one’s place in it can be exciting but also a bit daunting. Many students will discover that their career trajectory follows a straight line. They might also find that success in the workforce will not solely be determined by mastery of a set of skills. The need to make a meaningful contribution to the world may also emerge as a core component of future happiness and for this reason, students should consider how their choices at school can facilitate this.
