Baylor University
I graduated from Baylor University as a triple major in Management, International Business and Spanish. I spent a semester studying abroad at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands which prompted my lifelong wanderlust which has taken me to over 60 countries across 6 continents. I then attended Harvard University to receive my Masters degree in International Relations in which I submitted a thesis titled "Heroism, Race, and Minority Lead Roles in Global Cinema Blockbusters." I was just admitted into UCL Institute of Education MPhil/PhD program (ranked #1 in the world in QS Rankings 2014-2021). I've been twice selected as an economics research intern for the US Department of State (France and Argentina). I've taught in several public, private, and boarding schools in the USA & Malaysia and served as a college counselor in the UAE. Lastly, I hold a college counseling certificate from Rice University.
Lisa Lozano
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
In the fall of 2012, I started applying to numerous colleges alone. As a first-generation, low-income student with a single parent, I learned everything independently. Eventually, my hard work in high school paid off and I was accepted to MIT. I completed my degree and my pre-med requirements in 2017 but decided to fulfill another passion: helping student access and succeed in college. I have served as a first-year college advisor for a cohort of nearly 80 students in the Greater Boston Area helping students apply to and get through college. As an advisor, I took a holistic approach, ensuring that students' academic, financial, professional, and personal needs were all considered. Then, I worked as a college readiness teacher for approximately 215 9th and 10th graders in San Antonio, TX and helped students practice their resume writing, drafting personal statements, and providing psychoeducational curricula (e.g., the importance of grit, coping during stressful times, finding support).  I now utilize my experiences so that other students do not need to go through the same challenging experience of applying to colleges on their own.

Hi! I am a freshman at the University of Texas at Austin majoring in Computational Biology and minoring in Business. As someone who participated in a lot of biomedical research and science fairs, I'd be especially helpful for students with a background in biomedical engineering/biology/biochemistry. When I am not in the lab or tutoring my peers, you can catch me playing the veena, baking, or reading. From building a school list to writing an amazing personal statement, I'm excited to help you throughout every stage of the admissions process!
