I said in my last post that I have one more interview with Arielle. I was wrong! I still have two more and the one I apparently missed is the interview on gap year. How could I have forgotten to share the video interview about this topic?
Gap year is not a popular option taken by high school graduates here in the Philippines primarily because, Filipinos have this mentality that the sooner the parents get to finish their responsibility in sending their child/children to school, the better. Why? Because it’s economical and their child/children can then help in sending their younger siblings to school and in providing for the family as well.
But like our decision to homeschool where we took the road less traveled, we again took a leap of faith and let our homeschooled high school graduate take a gap year. Here are Arielle’s thoughts about her gap year experience:
- How was your gap year?
- Was it a good decision to take a gap year?
- What did you do during your gap year?
- Would you recommend taking a gap year to high school graduates?
Taking a gap year, I would say, is one blessing I am really grateful for. It is the best decision we made for our homeschooled high school graduate. No regrets.
