About this livestream

Description

High school is tough, and applying to college is rough. So, here at CollegeVine, we want to make sure you’re putting the same time and effort into yourself as you are into your academic endeavors. In this installation of Level up, Shravya will be talking all things mental health. She’ll walk you through what exactly mental health is and give tips on how to take care of it.

Stop by to ask a few questions or stick around the whole stream to get a better idea of what mental health looks like and how you can nurture yours!

Your host

Undergrad College: Rice University '20

Work Experience: During my time at Rice, I mentored dozens of high school students through the college application process, along with editing essays and tutoring students for the ACT/SAT. I also interned at a medical technology startup, conducted research in Brazil, and gave a TEDx talk. I recently finished applying to medical school; I've been admitted to multiple schools, and will be starting in the Fall.

My Admissions Story: I remember feeling very blindsided by the admissions process and not knowing where to begin. I hope that sharing my experiences and some of the things I’ve learned along the way will help guide other students in a similar boat.

Audience questions

These are questions from the audience that we had time to answer during the live session. If you have any other questions, you can request an answer from Shravya and other CollegeVine experts in an upcoming livestream or on the Q&A Forum anytime.
21:50@Busybee:What do you do when you have an off-week mental health-wise? Do you push through or feel okay with taking a pause?
29:47@Busybee:How can I feel less anxiety during the college admissions process so it doesn't hold me back?
32:48@1000_Words:How do you tell how much stress is to much? Highschool and college admissions are stressful for everyone, but how do you know when enough is enough?
38:57@1000_Words:How did you avoid the "senior slack year"? I know I can get a bit lazy...
41:46@LNI2004:Sorry, I arrive very late. I have severe test anxiety. Any tips?
46:35@spidermonkey09:How can I keep myself accountable and make sure I make time for myself? I do have a schedule but, I ignore it sometimes.
