Hi! I’m Stashia!

(pronounced ‘stay sha’)

I believe anyone can be a global citizen no matter where you live.  From my 25+ years of experience in international education, I have seen how much a student gains from being globally minded.  It’s LIFE CHANGING (in a very good way)! 

I have studied abroad in college, worked as an English teacher for non-native English speakers both in the U.S. and abroad, and have continued to guide both international and U.S. students in their college educational planning throughout my higher education career.  And this is what I’ve learned:

The students most successful in their transition to college and beyond have been prepared to live in our increasingly diverse world.  

I created GlobalLife Education Consulting to offer students and families guidance in preparing for college whether it be here in the U.S. or abroad.  I offer globally-minded services that make a difference in students’ lives with a genuine simple approach to take the edge off the college admission process.   

Whether students are interested in taking a gap year, learning English essay tips, or searching for college admission guidance, all of these global services can be found through GlobalLife Education Consulting.

Yes! GlobalLife Education Consulting services offers comprehensive packages, mini packages, and hourly services.  You have the option to pick a service (s) with flexibility to stack your services for your customized needs.

How old are most students when they start planning for summer, gap, and/or college options?

We recommend thinking about summer plans early in high school.  Summer programs look different for each student and it is good to know your options and program requirements. Gap and college planning typically is more focused toward the end of sophomore year through senior year.

For Gap students, will I stay on track to go to college?

Research shows that 90% of students who take an intentional gap year attend college the following year. Many colleges encourage students to take a gap year with over 150 colleges offering a deferral process.

How expensive is it to take a Gap Year?

With all the different options, the cost of a gap year can meet any budget.  Some gappers divide up the gap year working in between gap semesters to help cover the costs while others work in the summers leading up to their gap year.  There are also many gap year providers that offer scholarship opportunities.
