Imagine you’re a goldfish in a 10-gallon tank. You’re the master of all you survey, from the waving greenery to the faux ancient ruins. One day, you’re moved to an 80-gallon tank with far more room to swim and lots of new fish species and decorations. How would you feel?

Nicole Harris, an alumna who attended the first Julian Krinsky Summer Internship Program, reconnects and comes full-circle with the hopes of taking her own JKCP intern this summer! Through her experience at Julian Krinsky Summer Internship Program, she ultimately decided to attend University of Pennsylvania for higher education. Nicole graduated with a BS in Economics in 2010. She is the COO of Slyce, an image recognition and visual search company. Prior to Slyce, Nicole ran operations at SnipSnap, a mobile coupon app, which was acquired by Slyce in 2015, and since then she has taken on a leadership role at the parent company.
The high school years are a time for discovering oneself — learning strengths and weaknesses, identifying dreams and goals for the future, developing key communication and real-world skills, and mapping out plans for college or a career after graduation.
High school is indeed a time that demands a lot of independence. In these four years, students will have to balance homework, extracurricular activities, social lives, and even part-time jobs or college applications. What's more, high schoolers' peer groups can be very influential, so a child's autonomy becomes even more important.
