Our guests, Shaunté and SeKai Parker, join the Heels of Success podcast to discuss their experience with obtaining over $900,000 in college scholarships.
Shaunte is a licensed real estate agent in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Her daughter, SeKai, has aspirations of becoming a doctor. During our conversation, Shaunté shares that parents need to start the process of looking for college scholarship opportunities when your student enters 9th grade. She jokingly stated that for her this process was like having a full-time job – from submitting applications to managing deadlines.
A key is not only having a child who is a good student; but also, one who is highly engaged in student activities and community volunteerism.
Listen in as Shaunté and Sekai expound upon their experience with high school and managing the college scholarship process.
