College & University Essay and/or Interview Prep (Remote) with MFA and BA graduate

Methodology

I've always been strong in writing so I've informally prepped family and friends for college by reading then providing feedback on their essays as well as hearing their interview answers. All have been accepted to their dream school to which they were applying; some of these institutions included UCSF School of Pharmacy (grad) and Haas Business School at UC Berkeley (undergrad). Throughout the years, I've conducted interviews and hiring as well as being interviewed myself and so have picked up some insights on what makes a great interview.

The goal is not to have you write better but to better convey your story and represent who you are on paper and in person with the efficiency and clarity. I would get a sense of who you are, your interests, your passions, and what you want to accomplish then we figure out the best way to incorporate those things into your essay and interview as well as instructing you on professionalism. I believe these skills will also help you down the line when you're writing cover letters and interviewing for future jobs.

Background

I graduated with two diplomas and honors from Walnut High School -- a two-time National Blue Ribbon school and one of the top 100 high schools in America. I studied in the International Baccalaureate Program, focusing on English, History, and Theater higher level.

I then graduated from UC Berkeley in three years with my B.A. in Mass Communications.

I did grad school at USC and received my M.F.A. from the prestigious Peter Stark Producing Program, which only accepts 24 students each academic year.
