When we have access to something, we can use it, take advantage of it.
Things like, membership gives you access to our online movie library. Or, members of the XYZ Sky Club have access to our airport lounges around the country.
Very well-known, ah, gets a lot of attention.
A high-profile entrepreneur might be in the news a lot, in newspapers and magazines and such.
On the other side, we say, “low-profile” and “keep a low-profile.” Like, as a new employee, I’m keeping a low-profile in meetings, just, listening and learning for a while.

A session in which one person would receive advice and suggestions from one counselor.
A session is a period of time spent on a particular activity. And this can cover a wide range of length of time. I had a one hour session at the gym this morning. Or, stocks soared in yesterday’s trading session.
be eligible to - 〜する資格がある
Up at the top, Grace says, “It sounds like a great program. Who’s eligible to sign up for it?”
Who’s allowed by the rules or the laws to do something or to get something.
Eligible to, we say with verbs. If it’s a noun, eligible for.
Mr. Sugita and I have judged a speech context for non-native speakers of English. So, native speakers are not eligible to participate. Or, my daughter is not eligible for the contest.

take advantage of - 〜を活用する、利用する
Here, “take advantage of” means “use an opportunity or a resource.” There’s no negative meaning. But it can mean exploit something in an unethical way or a mercenary way. Like, he took advantage of his friends’ kindness to borrow lots of money. Or, she took advantage of his trusting nature and sold him fake stocks.
A person with legal responsibility to take care of another person. Ah, in this case, ah, a young person, a minor. And the legal right to make certain decisions for them. If someone’s parents had died, for example, their aunt and uncle could become their legal guardian or perhaps their grandparents. Guardians are also appointed for adults who can’t make their own decisions for certain reasons.

where one wants to be - 〜
Collins says, “Their long-term goal is to get students to think about where they want to be in 10 years – ” This can involve a physical location but more than that, it’s “What does a person want to be doing?” You know, what kind of career, what kind of job do they want to be having?
What about their family goals? So, it’s, common to hear this in job interviews.
You know, “Where do you want to be in 5 years?” Or, “Where do you see yourself in 10 years?”
