Yale University

As a first-generation college student, I understand how daunting the college admissions process may seem to those who have no experience with it. Despite the challenges I encountered, I was admitted to every college I applied to and learned how the process works along the way. I bring my past advising experiences helping students draft and write essays, create college application plans, and manage their time to my role as an Advisor. The pride in seeing my students succeed makes me excited to help you on your journey to college. I believe that behind every successful student there are individuals who have helped them find and express their voice, and I can’t wait to work with you to accomplish this!

Hello! My name is Naomi Beckley and I am a recent graduate of Yale University. I majored in Global Affairs in addition to a certificate in Education Studies. I am very passionate about working towards a state of equity in education, particularly improving the quality of education and access to academic resources for marginalized students. I professionally hope to do so by attending law school and becoming involved with education policy and legislation. I have 4 years of experience of advising high school students through their college application processes, with my students going on to attend schools like Vanderbilt, University of Southern California, University of Wisconsin - Madison, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and University of Pennsylvania. I really enjoy the work that goes into being an advisor, particularly guiding a student in figuring out their college fit and reading essays. Super excited to meet and work with you on what will be a challenging but ultimately fulfilling journey!

Yale University
Hello! My name is Mariko and I graduated from Yale University's five-year BA/MPH program in 2022 with undergraduate degrees in the History of Public Health and Ethnicity, Race, and Migration and a Master's in Public Health in Social and Behavioral Sciences with a concentration in U.S. Racial Health Justice. I deeply valued my college experience and I hope to help others find the same transformative opportunities through helping you through your college process! Outside of the classroom, I was an All-American nominated water polo player who conducted historical research on medicine and the slave trade and worked at both Yale's Afro-American and Asian American Cultural Centers. I was accepted regular decision with a "likely" letter and was a recruited two-sport athlete in high school. Now, I'm back home in Southern California continuing my work in health equity consulting and teaching at Loyola Marymount University.
