I loved the template to follow along with the workshop! And, thank you for making it ACTIONABLE and not full of "fluff" content like most other free workshops are 🙂



I learned that college essays are not difficult when I followed the steps you recommended.



Wow! That workshop was so great. Loved all the exercises and everything you shared! I will definitely recommend you!

The idea of applying to college and writing a great essay feels a lot more fun and personal than it did before.



I was able to identify a main theme and a great outline for my essay! I look forward to attending you next workshops!



I’m writing down everything you’re saying. Your ideas are titanium right now.



I learned that core values are very important part of the college essays. I thought that there are very few topics I could write about but after today I got lots of ideas about what I could write my essay about and how to structure it.



I really like how this wasn't so much of a lecture rather an interactive time with a helpful worksheet to fill in on my own.



It was a lot more interesting than I thought it would be, and I was more engaged than I thought as well.



I hope your ears are burning because everyone has been singing your praises today! I've heard absolutely wonderful things about you and how well yesterday's workshop went! Thank you for pouring into the lives of our students in such a special way.
