Ever since 2014, Collibri Foundation supports the Brussels part of King Baudouin Foundation's Boost project. With intensive coaching, Boost helps young students to go through their studies successfully and to improve their chances on the employment market and in life.
Yasmine: "It will be a special year. Indeed, after secondary school, we will have to build our own life. In this respect, this year will be the end of a stage. I am studying sciences-maths-English at the Institut de la Vierge Fidèle in Schaarbeek. Afterwards, I would like to study something covering science and health. Medicine? Maybe ... I hope it will become clear to me this year."
What does Boost mean to you?
Ioana: "Boost is an incredible support: we are coached until we graduate from higher education. There are several activities all year long, usually on Wednesday afternoon or sometimes during weekends. A course to learn to speak before an audience, the Nike Day where we meet all the other Boosters in the country, an online meeting with the sister of Saudi Arabian women's rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul ... Captivating, surprising activities broadening our outlook on the world and boosting our self-confidence. There are also more practical courses: about methods for studying for example."
