"Friendship is a wildly underrated medication."| A UCLA & Rice University Alum on HS Courses

We had the opportunity of interviewing Joyce, an alum from UCLA and student at Rice University about: High School Courses


Here are some of her qualifications:

  • a professional violinist

  • a YouTuber who shares valuable advice about her violin experiences

Here are some important words she shares

  • " ...studied often with my friends and I also used different online resources."

  • "Hanging out with friends! Like I mentioned earlier, I had enough to balance — with schoolwork, homework and practicing.... It wasn’t an easy sacrifice to make but I’m glad that it paid off in the long run.





Q: How did you handle teachers that weren’t putting effort into their job or didn’t have the knowledge to teach a course?

A: I studied often with my friends and I also used different online resources. The internet has changed so much since I was last in high school and I’m sure there are plenty of youtube videos and other services that you can use to supplement your coursework.




Q: What did you have to sacrifice in high school in order to do well academically?

A: Hanging out with friends! Like I mentioned earlier, I had enough to balance — with schoolwork, homework and practicing. It didn’t allow for much time to do any other extracurriculars or social events. It wasn’t an easy sacrifice to make but I’m glad that it paid off in the long run.
