I knew Jennifer from tutoring where we worked on ACT prep. My score increased from 25 to 32, which helped me receive a scholarship. I reached out to her again for help on my essays. Everything I tried to write was boring and felt like I was bragging. I had no challenge, hardship, or inspiring event to write about. We ended up writing about my grandparents’ ranch and how I would wake up to my grandmother’s cooking. Jennifer taught me how to show a different side of myself that I would not have been able to do on my own.
