College Personal Statements
Applying for undergraduate or graduate programs can feel like a high-stakes endeavor. That's why it's important to have a second set of eyes read over your work for grammar, clarity, and originality. Whether you're applying to your dream college or medical school, I can help you brainstorm different approaches to telling your personal story that will make you stand out to the admissions committee. Alternatively, I can help you polish a draft and ensure that your essay captures your core strengths and unique voice.
Scholarship applications are another specialty of mine, as I was awarded four different scholarships during my undergraduate career. The best way to impress your readers is to tell a good story that reveals your genuine self; I'd love to help you achieve that goal.
Training & Qualifications
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English and psychology, wth minors in professional writing and creative writing. In my five years as a writing consultant and tutor, I have hosted personal statement critique groups and presented on the topic at a regional conference. In addition, as an application reader for a large public university, I have reviewed over 1,000 personal statements to date. Thus, I am highly familiar with the clichés of the genre and how to avoid them.
