Model Answer

Hey Jenny,

I was so glad to get your letter, and I totally get the dilemma you're facing about whether to go to college or start working. Let me share my thoughts with you.

First, I have a hunch that college might not be your thing. You've always been more of a hands-on, practical learner, and I can't see you sitting in lectures and pouring over textbooks for years. Though college can be a fantastic experience, it's not for everyone, and it's crucial to follow your own path.

Getting a job now could be a great idea for you as it offers a chance to gain real-world experience, build skills, and figure out what you're passionate about. Plus, you'll be earning money and gaining independence, which is liberating.

Given your friendly and outgoing personality, I think customer service jobs like working in a cafe, as a sales associate, or even in event planning could be a great start. These roles would let you interact with people and learn valuable communication skills while earning a paycheck.

Ultimately, the choice is yours, Jenny, and you should follow your gut. Just remember, there's no one-size-fits-all answer, and the important thing is finding what makes you happy and fulfilled.

Catch up soon!

Warm regards,
