After a disappointing decision from my early action school and a subsequent blow of hopelessness, Nan revitalized my spirit and inspired me to reach for the top. From the first meeting, she was so driven and passionate, making it clear that her ambition was about helping me succeed and find a place that was right for me.
As a withdrawn individual, I had struggled with showing my strengths in my personal statement and application, but Nan, with her fearless determination, inspired me how to be confident in my own abilities, as well as hone my writing to showcase them.
Her round-the-clock mentorship, including late-night texts and excited phone calls, made me that much more comfortable in the application process. She believed that I could get accepted into schools that I had only dreamed of – and I did, thanks to her help!
Thank you so much Nan for teaching me to dream big and achieve those dreams. #Harvard2023.
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.
