What's your story? The personal essay is your opportunity to distinguish yourself from thousands of other applicants in the college admission process. In this two-week course, students will learn what makes a story meaningful and memorable and how to use their own life experiences to demonstrate not just what they've done in high school, but WHO they are. Learn what not-to-do in college admission essays, and "ideate" options for your own essay. Avoid roadblocks like procrastination and perfectionism. This fun and engaging workshop will help students get ahead of the application process while gaining a deeper understanding of their own story. Suitable for all high school students interested in exploring the art of storytelling for impact and influence. 

Students should bring a laptop or writing device.
