Join Matriculate High School Fellows as they discuss Matriculate’s free college advising program and their journeys applying for full-ride scholarship options (like QuestBridge, Gates Foundation, and Jack Kent Cooke). In this session, you’ll hear from students who secured full-ride scholarships, how they navigated the application process, and advice they would give to students like you.

Undergrad College: Georgetown University '21
Major: History; Minors in French and Russian
Work Experience: The college applications process is all about responding to one question: who are you? I am passionate about helping students craft a creative answer. I have been helping students gain admission to the T25 schools of their dreams since 2018, when I first started working for CollegeVine as an Applications Consultant, and later, blog writer. Soon after graduating from Georgetown, I started my own company to make college advising my career. I currently mentor students through one-on-one consulting sessions and essay editing.
My Admissions Story: My admissions journey began with a desire to dive into the humanities and have an adventure of self-discovery. I applied to East Coast liberal arts schools that value creativity and specialize in teaching languages, history, and international affairs. One thin deferral letter came in the fall, a thicker envelope came in the spring, and with that, I was accepted to my dream school — Georgetown University!
