Essay and Writing
If reading encourages us to make an empathic leap into other people’s lives
then writing is about authentically giving voice to who you are with clarity, conviction and passion.
If you are willing to make that leap of faith, we’ll help you spread your wings, and find your way on your distinctive journey
Readers (college admission officers) have instant access to quantifiable data but they don’t have access to who you are and what you bring to the world. Our job is to help you show them.

Writing an essay is an act of communication. It’s also an act of exploration.
Montaigne used the word essai to describe his writing.
To essay is to try, to attempt, to test something out, to give it a whirl.
