It was late in the application stage when I first sat down with Mrs. Kashman, and I felt overwhelmed by the daunting personal statement application requirement. I possessed a piece of writing in which I felt no pride and no connection. Instead of simply editing my work, we spent our first meeting discussing my personal history and the experiences that shaped my development. Together, we found my “voice” and decided on a subject that supported my application. I appreciated that Mrs. Kashman didn’t simply write the paper for me. Instead, we developed a theme that highlighted my strengths and she helped me build my narrative in our follow-up consultations. Several admissions counselors positively referenced details of my personal statement, confirming my belief that Mrs. Kashman had helped me find the right story to tell. Mrs. Kashman’s help was exactly what I needed, and now I’m attending my dream school next fall.
