Shimonti Paul Senior Writer and Editor
Ideating, reviewing and enriching application essays and Statement of Purposes have been her prerogative for almost a decade. Working on the principle, ‘Each write-up should mirror the student’spersona effectively’, she has been able to create winning ones, which have not only enabled students reach their dream schools, but also acquire scholarships.
It is not uncommon for students to get stressed over situational questions related to leadership, diversity, team experiences, ethical challenges etc. The learnings that you gain through diverse situations in life often go unnoticed EVEN by you. This is where our expert writer will help you out. She can help you think on these lines andthus create powerful essays.
She stresses on ‘polishing’ rather than ‘creating’, simply because when a write-up comes from the heart (or should we say, mind!) from the student, its value and impact is beyond words.“Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly -- they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.” ― Aldous Huxley
