"Without a clear strategy, preparing for college isn’t just confusing and overwhelming; it becomes personal.
Most teens worry they will disappoint their family or embarrass themselves if they truly give their best, and even their best isn’t good enough.
Having earned a degree from Harvard and knowing what it takes, I help students around the world develop themselves into the kinds of students colleges feel lucky to have enrolled."
