Meet the panelists: Madeleine, Kathryn

Maddie Mousseau is a senior from the Seattle area in the College. She is majoring in American Studies. Maddie has studied abroad in Morocco and also taken a gap semester abroad. She has been actively involved on campus as a Resident Assistant and in the International Relations Club. Outside of school, she enjoys hiking and trying new teas.

Kathryn is a Senior from Atlanta, Georgia at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business. She is double majoring Marketing and Finance with a minor in English literature. Kathryn is Head of Consulting on the McDonough Global Case Team (MGCT), a member of Innovo Consulting, and a dancer on the Hoya Blue Diamonds dance team. In her free time she also loves to cook, workout with friends, travel with her family, and watch Sci-Fi movies.

Tiana is a junior at Georgetown University, studying government with a double minor in psychology and education, justice, and inquiry studies. She is originally from Augusta, Georgia, but she graduated high school in Stafford, Virginia, #10 out of over 400 students in her graduating class. She is a first generation student, a proud member of the Community Scholars Program and the Georgetown Scholarship Program. She was awarded the Patrick Healy Scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year. She is a member of the Hoya Blue Diamonds, a community service based dance team on campus. She also has a lot of experience working for the Center for Social Justice in DC Reads, the After School Kids Program, and co-led the Criminal Justice Immersion Trip for the Alternative Break Program (March 2020). Outside of school, she enjoys trading/investing in the foreign exchange market, where she is also an independent business owner. She is also a fellow, volunteering for a school board political campaign for Luisa Santos, who graduated from Georgetown University. Something about me that I value is that I am Christian, and I give God credit for where I am today.

Allesandra is a senior from São Paulo, Brazil in the School of Foreign Service. She is pursuing a Bachelor's in Foreign Service with a certification in German. Lele was the co-founder and president of the Rotaract Club of Georgetown University, where she had the opportunity to organize the Rotary International Peace and Conflict Resolution Conference.

Undergrad College: Harvard University '17

Major: Music

Graduate College: University of Michigan, M.M.

Work Experience: Now in my fourth year at CollegeVine, I have helped dozens of students gain acceptance to their top-choice schools and have also advised and mentored thousands more through my livestreams. Apart from my work at CV, I am also a professional conductor and a multi-instrumentalist. I currently serve as the music director of the Apollo Ensemble of Boston, and I have led symphonic concerts and operatic productions throughout the United States.

My Admissions Story: Initially interested in pursuing a career as a performing cellist, I applied almost exclusively to music schools with dual and double degree options and ultimately enrolled in the Tufts University/New England Conservatory Dual Degree Program. Unhappy with the combined program and worried I'd never feel like I was fully a student at either school, I logged back into in October of my freshman year. I can't say I went about the transfer process in the smartest way (I only applied to two schools!), but Harvard miraculously accepted me (or 'excepted me' as I wrote in a celebratory Facebook post that day - no one ever let me live that one down), and the rest was history.
