Community Workshops

Wuhan Chapter

BranchOut! students from Wuhan Britain-China International School are expanding the work of BranchOut!'s Community Workshops to new corners of the world! Students arrange interviews with experts in various fields as educational resources for their peers to explore potential career fields and areas of study. The organizers work in multiple languages.

"The goal of a career panel is to help people, especially high school students, gain perspectives about potential future careers and make informed decisions.

I am expanding the reach of this project to China and Chinese speakers by interviewing Chinese professionals. I believe this can help people in my community and globally gain these essential career insights to benefit their educational and professional growth."

EMERGING FIELD

For an emerging psychological field, there is currently not a lot of traditional job availability in positive psychology. Sabrina was innovative in finding a career path by combining research and knowledge application together. This is an important mindset for high school students who are unsure or worried about job prospects.

GROWTH MINDSET

As intelligent teenagers who have not experienced failure up until high school or college, failures can feel shocking and lead to extreme feelings of depression. These personal experiences are highly related to Sabrina's research that inspires students to use failure as motivation to improve and to foster an inspirational growth mindset.

INTERDISCIPLINARY

For students who are uncertain about their future careers and worry that they might not end up working in the field they major in in college, Sabrina shared that knowledge from other subjects can be very relevant, so keep learning. Moreover, soft skills, especially teamwork and humility, are crucial to success in every field.
