Today on the pod we are rounding out Season Four of Gap Year Radio with a feature from your cohosts, Margo and Julia. We discuss gap year and college planning in the time of COVID, something we know so many high school seniors are grappling with this year. For the second half of the show you will hear from Drew Beasley, a gap year alumni who started college both with and without gap time, and speaks to the important that time abroad had on his future, and his current work helping to promote the gap year movement.
Also, for all you cool cats and kittens out there planning a gap year (expected or unexpected) check out the affordable Gap Year Association Student membership! You’ll get plugged into forums run by gap year experts, discounts on gap year related experiences and more!
Drew spent his gap semester with ARCC Gap in the Pacific Islands traveling through Sumatra, Bali, and Fiji. He has been working closely with GoOverseas and the USA Gap Year Fairs to help promote the gap year movement. And you can find Drew’s personal compilation of video media on YouTube or on Instagram @drew_beas.
