About

I graduated with honors from Harvard University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts. My advising experience includes working at Harvard University in undergraduate student affairs and career advising, conducting alumni interviews for the Harvard Alumni Association, and supporting applicants through the college and graduate school application processes. My past clients have been admitted to the top schools of their choice including Harvard, Stanford, MIT, U.C. Berkeley, and the University of Michigan.

My process

I work in partnership with students on crafting authentic and compelling essays, including personal statements, supplemental essays, and short answer responses. I provide comprehensive feedback on all essays that I review by providing in-depth structural and thematic feedback in addition to more granular edits pertaining to grammar, syntax, and style. Ultimately, my goal is to help students translate their unique experiences and perspective into nuanced, impactful essays that strengthen students' college applications and chances of admission.
