Adeeva Myers
University of California – Berkeley
My name is Adeeva! I am a Southern California native and spent my college years in the Bay Area. I earned my Bachelors of Arts degree in Social Welfare from the University of California, Berkeley and completed my Masters of Education degree in Educational Counseling from the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California (USC). While in undergrad, I participated in various leadership roles on campus including working as a Resident Assistant and being a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. I have extensive experience in college access, previously working with organizations such as TRiO Upward Bound and the USC College Advising Corp where I assisted majority low income, first generation students in applying and enrolling into college. I especially love assisting students through the career/major exploration process, essay writing, and match & fit when it comes to making their college decision. I look forward to helping you achieve your personal college goals!

Nanette Amihere
Boston University

Everyone through CollegeAdvisor was really helpful and informative. My advisor Brian helped me with my essay, and helped me in researching schools and scholarships. As a high school senior, I could not have gotten through this stressful college application period without them, and I would definitely recommend CollegeAdvisor to anyone applying to college!
