Although I graduated from high school a decade ago, I have never forgotten about how stressful high school and the college admissions process were for me. I want to help adolescents through this incredibly difficult time, as guiding others through stressful times is something that I am passionate about and find deeply fulfilling.
The extremely high level of stress experienced by high school students has always piqued my interest. During my high school years, I was deeply concerned about the high level of competition and stress surrounding the college application process. I attended a conference at Stanford University given by an organization called Stressed-Out-Students, which has since evolved into an incredible organization called Challenge Success. At this conference, I learned about how to address the high level of stress and psychological issues (anxiety, depression, eating disorders, suicide, etc.) brought on by the college application process. I was trained along with a team of faculty and administrators from my school in creating a healthier environment for students at school, characterized by a definition of success that relies upon qualitative factors such as integrity, creativity and resilience, rather than a quantitative one dependent on grades, trophies and test scores.
It seems only natural to me to have a business helping students become more college-ready. I believe that it is never too early to develop strong writing and organizational skills; these skills are fundamental to success both in college and life. Furthermore, these skills are extremely valuable in the workplace and contribute to one’s level of independence and self-reliance at every age. It is my goal that each of my students achieves both of these qualities. Evidently, the better writing and organizational skills a student has, the better grades he or she will earn, and the more successful his or her college application process will be.
