College Personal Statement Support

Do you remember how difficult it was writing your college personal statement? If you never had to write one, imagine answering this question when you were 17:

Describe the most significant challenge you have faced and the steps you have taken to overcome this challenge. How has this challenge affected your academic achievement?

This is just 1 of the 8 questions featured on the University of California (UC) application and each applicant must answer 4 of these 8 questions - each in under 350 words.

It's intimidating for many students - especially those who are looking to become the first in their family to attend college. Many students struggle with the personal narrative component of the college application process and some even choose not to apply because of this.

We are here to help!

Our Storytellers PLUS ME program is currently in high demand from low-income schools because many educators realize the value our program provides to students as they embark on their college personal statement journey. Unfortunately, many of these interested schools do not have the funds or resources available to bring our program to their site.

One of our goals this year is to help solve this problem by asking YOU to help in the funding of these programs. By making a recurring monthly or one-time donation to our campaign, we will be able to bring our program to more high school seniors this Fall to help them develop their personal narratives for their college personal statements.
