Kirstie: College Dropout or College Grad? (Enhanced DVD)
Kirstie is a musician who is advised by a life coach and a career specialist to get serious about her future. She works in a fast food restaurant for a day to get perspective. It is physically demanding work that does not appeal to her creative talents. She also gets a chance to work as a part of a team during the experience and she learns how to take direction. She does a small stint as a graphic designer and she thinks that she has found her career after this. She will have to create a portfolio and apply to a degree program, and she may also have to get a job to cover her tuition. She thinks she has found what she really wants and she is ready for success. (26 minutes)
