About this livestream


What makes an applicant 'diverse?' How should you approach diversity in your essays?

Well, to find out, join Moriah for a breakdown of 'diversity' or 'community' essay type, including: what admissions officers are looking for, when to include school-specific info, and general tips for writing. She'll also go through an essay example or two on-air so you can see how admissions officers would critique this kind of essay.

Once the presentation is complete, Moriah will open up the floor for a Q&A session to answer any questions you may have about diversity-themed essays.

Work Experience: Outside of mentoring students on CollegeVine, I’m interested in finance and it’s intersection with the fashion industry. I currently work in finance for an international consumer packaged goods company.

My Admissions Story: Throughout high school I was especially interested in math and science and focused my college applications on schools with good science and pre-med programs. When I got to college I took my first introductory chemistry class with an incredibly difficult professor (he is one of the AP Chemistry test writers every year). After that, I decided to switch gears and focus on public policy as another way that I could help people.
