  4. Explain the value of the TOKTW experience in relation to your ideas about post secondary (after high school) plans (education?, training?, travel?, work?).   It gives me a look into what a ‘professional’ day at an actual job/career would look like. It also helps me decide if that certain career would be a good match for me.
