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.

College Testimonials from Clients Who Were Accepted to Vassar College

Jan Marie Borromeo
Stony Brook University

CollegeAdvisor guided me and my family with a process that we were unfamiliar with. I felt comfortable asking questions and received advice that aided me every step of the way. With every session, I left with new information that allowed me to evaluate my school choices and essays. I also greatly relied on the webinars which were helpful. My overall experience was great!
