Personal Statement

Since graduating from Bucknell University, I have had the amazing opportunity to live in Europe and travel the world. I have enjoyed learning about other cultures and have learned a lot about the differences between the education systems and schools in various countries.

After helping many friends in the US and abroad with their applications, I realized how stressful the college admission process can be. The amount of information available is overwhelming and often ineffective. With my background and passion for working with students, I realized I have a great potential to help those who wish to attend college.

I truly enjoyed my time studying  and find joy in helping others to have that same opportunity. Throughout my professional development, I visited over 70 universities across the US, toured the campuses and met with their admissions representatives. I have also attended many conferences for college counselor professionals and volunteered at admissions workshops for future students at Bucknell University. I am dedicated to helping students and their families through the college search and admissions process and look forward to helping them achieve their goals.”

He helped lead the team to two consecutive first round victories in the 2005 and 2006 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament.
