I have worked in the college access world since 2014. In my time as a college counselor, I have worked with hundreds of students as they navigate their college applications. In my role as a college counselor, I strive to give my students the tools to be self-advocates, leaders, and life long learners who pursue incredible opportunities.

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!

Vignesh Namasivayam
Yale University
Hi there! I'm Vig Namasivayam, a 2020 grad of Yale. I strongly believe that every student has a path to a great school if they embrace who they are. For me, delving into my extracurriculars is what put me in a great position to succeed. For others, it's their academic or athletic passions. I'm really excited to help you navigate a tough and scary process and make it as stress-free as possible; I was a psychology major at school, which I loved because it has given me the tools to to dig into how other people think, which helps me help them. Beyond that, I really love entertainment, any kind. Since high school, I've been really involved in theater, culminating in my being the treasurer for the Yale Dramatic Association. I also was the Sports Director for our school's radio, getting the opportunity to travel and broadcast sports games. I was also the Treasurer for the Class of 2020. I would also be remiss to mention that I've definitely seen more TV shows than anyone I know.
