get the facts
Lets address those fears that you have
Maybe you are thinking “I don’t have the money to finance my education in a country like Canada or the UK” or “I am not sure if a degree from abroad will be worth the investment” Hold up, fellas! Let’s look at the cold-hard facts
89% of international students work part time to support themselves
$7.4 billion dollars are awarded to students in scholarships every year
71% employers say they prefer candidates with international experience
And guess what? SAT and GRE scores matter more than GPA when competing for scholarships! (so you still have time to make an impression!)
BUT MAYBE YOU...
- Have no idea where and how to apply right now
- Are bombarded with confusing application processes and different university requirements
- Don’t know if you will be able to get a job after the completion of your course
- Feel totally lost with your study abroad goals and what you want to achieve overall in your education and career…

WE’RE HERE TO HELP YOU MAKE THAT DREAM A REALITY.
meet your mentors
We are Moizza, Rija & Hafsah. We’ve studied abroad on 100% scholarships in the USA in 2016 and 2017.
We’ve studied at Stanford, Creighton University, and New Mexico Highlands University.
Our team has research papers that have made it to Harvard University’s 2018 Ways of Knowing Conference.
We have presented papers at two conferences in Thailand, organized by the Tomorrow People Organization and one of us even has a distinction in research and writing.
Plus, we’ve won 7 fully funded scholarships.
Before our study abroad ventures, we had been just as uninspired by our lives as you are right now. We wanted to know the scope of our fields of study.
But that only made college admission counsellors frown. After graduating college, we realized that we weren’t as cool or accomplished as we thought we were. The career market was highly competitive, people had far more in-demand skills than we had, and that getting experience required experience (crazy!). Even those of our friends who graduated from the best of colleges weren’t valued for their worth in the international market. Multinational companies preferred international experience.
SO HERE’S WHAT WE DID
We went hunting for study abroad opportunities. We found that the whole search process was just so confusing. We would go to different websites and be bombarded with so many different universities to choose from, and so many different programs and application processes that we would just close our laptop.
SO we tied together careers and courses. We decided we wanted to earn more so we researched in-demand careers of the future. Then we invested in international, globally-recognized programs in those subjects. Meanwhile, many of our friends even earned on the side to gather credible work experience. When we came back, we already had the international exposure that multinational companies prefered. We joined employers who were simply WOW-ed by our qualifications and we already knew we’d be earning x4 the salary!
We worked towards our goal: get a degree or do a professional course from a top-notch, internationally recognized institution. Moizza got fully-funded scholarships to join the Stanford International Honors Program in 2016 and Creighton University, 2017. Rija got a full-ride to New Mexico Highlands University, USA in 2017. Working on the side helped us both pay the bills and travel to 10 states in the USA!
That’s how it worked for us and for the rest of the hard working international students at our universities. We knew our goal from the beginning, so we graduated not just with peace of mind, but also high-paying careers because we had the international study + work experience we designed for ourselves!
AND NOW, WE MENTOR OUR FRIENDS ON HOW TO DO THAT
At Gogetters, we want to grow a thriving community of go-getters, dreamers, and high-achievers!
But let’s be real, this isn’t about us, girl – it’s about YOU. And now that our friendship is official, we’re ready to help you achieve your entrepreneurial dreams faster than you ever thought possible.
