"Before I reached out to Ashleigh, I was very stressed about the essay writing process. Being first-gen, I didn’t know how to start or construct a good application. Ashleigh recommended I change one of my essay topics completely. She helped me better understand what the admissions counselors wanted me to communicate in my essays. She helped me make my essays more coherent and genuine."

"I am really excited to matriculate in the fall and am really thankful for your guidance throughout the application process. Your advice on essays and the application itself truly helped me provide a complete picture of myself to the universities I applied to. 

Thank you again for your help!"
