Torran Anderson

45 Minute Program

 

$129


This is a capstone course that pulls together writing about our backgrounds and challenges to create a personal statement. Note: the workshops Telling Stories About Our Background, Telling Stories About Loss, and Telling Stories About COVID-19 are prerequisites for this workshop as we use the previous writing exercises as background for creating a compelling personal statement.

Participants:
  1. Conduct a self-interview
  2. Use examples of background, loss, and challenges to create a statement of who they are and what they want to study
  3. The personal statement is geared towards a college entrance essay
