As a first generation, low-income student, the college process seemed like an untamable beast. The original list of colleges I was applying to consisted of three schools I knew I could get accepted into, because I lacked the confidence and time to apply to more prestigious reach schools.

The first time I spoke with Nan she helped me create a more extensive college list and she told me that she would help me get into college. Through hours of standardized test prep, brainstorming sessions, essay writing and rewriting, and editing, Nan and her team supported me and always listened to what I had to say and respected all of my boundaries.

All throughout the process, I felt supported like I never had before, not only did Nan helped me build an amazing college application, but she helped build my confidence in my potential and abilities.

As of today, I have gotten into UNC Chapel Hill, somewhere I never thought I would be good enough to even apply to.
