The purpose of Room 15's passion projects is to give you time in school to turn your hidden interests into talents you are known for.
When you go to college, you get to make a lot more choices about what subjects to study before you go out into the world
You'll have lots of people telling what they think you should be doing. But it's really important that you know your strengths so you can choose your own path.
Organising bits of paper is not a strength of mine so working in office (which I did for a few years) wasn't a good fit for me. I was really unhappy in the office and these days I feel a lot better going to work.
I still have to organize bits of paper as a teacher (and it's something I still need to work on) but these days I spend more time coming up with ideas than organising paper the balance is better.
This year I've had some amazing opportunities like going to Bali with Apple and Sydney with Google by following my passions and backing it up with hard work.
