Register for a preliminary coaching session, and we can sit down and brainstorm your personal statement together. I am passionate about storytelling and good at what I do, and what I will do as your writing coach is listen for your story. I will ask questions and discover what it is you want to say and then encourage you to express yourself clearly, logically, and in cohesive, skillfully expressed language.
