About Us

Journey 180 Planner was created by Anna Ren, an educational consultant, when she witnessed a third of her students develop mental health challenges due to the pandemic and the ever increasing demands on high school life. Having personally also faced anxiety and stress as a teen, Anna became determined to create a tool that not only helps students regain control of their chaotic teen life, but also help them better ground themselves in what truly matters to them.

Growing up as both a first-generation American and the first person to attend college in her family, Anna cares deeply about student success and personal growth, which is why every academic planner includes a free college admissions planning course.

The Journey 180 Planner is the result of over a decade of building genuine relationships with the hundreds of teens Anna has worked with and purposely includes elements such as: self-love, self-care, gratitude, passion exploration, and personal growth.
