Before the program I just finished a master’s in International Business, and my idea was to look for jobs abroad, however I came across Uprise Academy which looked like a much more interesting experience that combined learning and travel in Asia (which was precisely where I wanted to go initially).
I’ve been looking to relocate in Asia, and I have also been sticking to certain habits I’ve acquired during the program. For example keeping a journal, practicing yoga, meditation, and generally being more mindful in my daily life.
It would have to be the fast development of my capabilities to socialise. And also the push to come up with a new business idea, and all the general soft skills - from pitching a business idea to delivering a workshop to a large group of people.
If you do decide to join, be sure to dedicate a hundred percent of your energy to the program and the course. Make sure to get out of your comfort zone, connect with every tribe and Uprise team member. Time will fly by while you’re out there, so make sure you’ve tried everything you wanted to try, from travelling, to connecting, learning etc.
