“The personal statement is not merely a story with a beginning, middle and end, but rather, it is a story that leads to a beginning:  It is the opening chapter in a new phase of a person’s life. For this reason, I believe the personal statement is the most important piece of reflective writing a person does in life, and I hold the process of writing it in extremely high regard.”

Clients’ quotes:

“I just got an notice from Johnson that I was admitted with $6K/year. Very excited! Thank you so much for your help! I wouldn’t have the same result without you. Thank you!!!”


“Chaya is great, she has great notes and she is very nice and responsive. She has good ideas and advice.”


“Now that I’ve officially accepted INSEAD’s offer, I’d like to thank you for your professionalism, hard work, and support! Chaya, we had 3 weeks to prepare Cornell-Tech’s application from scratch, during which I had a business trip and you fell ill for a few days, yet we still managed to meet the deadline! I especially loved how you put a lot of effort into getting to know me personally, which led to you “branding” me as the photography enthusiast – we kept following that line for the rest of my applications as well. I truly appreciate your patience during that time – I know I was a bit (very) demanding. Thank you again!”
