Annie Ezzell
Wesleyan University
Hi folks! College applications are scary. Mine were especially scary, because I applied to my (mostly liberal arts) schools a year early. I'm now a sophomore at Wesleyan planning to declare a Classics major and Russian and Eastern European studies minor--if you are particularly interested in studying foreign and ancient languages in college, I have a ton of experience doing so! When I'm not in the classics library, I'm involved in reproductive justice advocacy, queer life on campus, and Wesleyan's flourishing music scenes. I think it's crucial to balance considerations of both academic fit and cultural fit when exploring college options, and I would love to help you do just that!

She has earned her bachelor’s degree from Smith College, having majored in American Studies with a Government minor. While most students see this time of transition in their lives as daunting or stressful, she hopes to highlight the excitement and energy of it. Solving the puzzle of the “right fit” can be very inspiring, and should be lasting, and yes, the process can be fun!
Sophie Webster
Harvard
Hi! I'm Sophie, a rising senior at Harvard studying Integrative Biology with a minor in Earth & Planetary Sciences. I’ve worked as an undergraduate researcher in a variety of areas (from neuroscience to biochemistry to climate change!), and I’m currently writing my senior thesis on urban ecology. Outside of class and the lab, I love singing a cappella, making theatre, and writing satire for the campus comedy publication. I’ve tutored and mentored many high school students, so I know all the excitement and nerves that come with applying to college. I’m looking forward to working with you to craft a stellar essay, shore up your candidate profile, and find the perfect fit!

Sophie Richard
Smith College
Hello everyone! I am a recent graduate from Smith College where I received my BA in Art History and Archaeology. I worked in the Admissions Office at Smith for over 3 years, giving tours around campus and helping prospective students and their families navigate financial aid deadlines, demonstrated interest, and more! This is a daunting process, and I wish there had been such comprehensive support for me when I went through it. I am a passionate writer, with several published undergraduate papers, and want to help motivated achievers bring out their unique personal narrative. How many times do we get to indulge in a little vanity and just write about ourselves?

Zoë Edington
University of California – Berkeley
Hi there! My name is Zoe (she/her/hers). In high school, I participated in dual enrollment, which eventually helped me graduate with two AA degrees and start college with junior status. I later went to UC Berkeley and graduated in 2018 with a BA in anthropology. As a college student I was unsure about the type of career that I wanted, so I joined a lot of student clubs, enrolled in random classes, and gained a variety of skills. I loved traveling so I studied abroad for a summer in Spain and a year in Australia, doing internships in both countries. I am passionate about educational equity and passing the torch to help future generations. I have worked with CollegeAdvisor.com for two years and I have advised clients who had a variety of academic interests. Some of the colleges that my previous clients have been accepted to include UC Berkeley, UCLA, and Duke Kunshan University.

Mika Simoncelli
Harvard
Hi! My name is Mika and I'm a sophomore (currently on a leave of absence) at Harvard University majoring in Art, Film, and Visual Studies. I know the college application process can be overwhelming, and the idea of finding the perfect school for you can be even more so! My journey to Harvard took some twists and turns (including a gap year and some transfer applications), so I've spent a lot of time thinking about what exactly I want out of my college experience and what makes a school a good match for me. I applied to college with intended majors that ranged from art and art history, to math, to english, and was particularly interested in interdisciplinary programs that would bridge my art practice with my other interests. I also applied to most schools with an art portfolio, and am here to support fellow artists in finding a place that will nurture you and help you grow. Outside of being a college advisor, I also work as a creative writing teacher, and I DJ for Harvard's student-run radio station.
