Williams College Advisors

Princeton University

Hello! My name is Persis and I am a senior at Princeton University studying neuropsychology, with a minor in African-American studies. As a first-generation college student from an underprivileged background, I am passionate about college access. I was accepted into prestigious summer programs and colleges, and earned over 1.5 million dollars in scholarships. Over the past four years, I have helped students get accepted into Yale, Princeton, Bates, and George Washington, among others. I assist students throughout the entire college process: researching schools, writing essays, finding recommenders, applying for scholarships, and choosing programs. Most notably, I have helped many students get full-tuition scholarships to their dream schools. You don’t need to be a prodigy, valedictorian, or class president to enter your target program! Nor do you need to be highly connected or wealthy. I empower my students to highlight the skills and experiences they already have, to show their unique value in their applications. In college, I started off pre-med, conducting and publishing neuroscience research. I was interested in marketing, and was selected from externships at Google and P&G. Now, I am pursuing a career in private equity and have had prestigious internships on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley. I have a hybrid of experiences that I can pull from to advise you. I’m excited to work with you!

Williams College

I hold my B.A. from Williams College, where I graduated with Highest Honors in Theatre and the prestigious Hubbard L. Hutchinson Memorial Fellowship. I'm an actor, playwright, and musician from Western Massachusetts based in New York City. This spring, I made my Broadway debut as a Swing and Dance Captain in the Tony-Award-winning production of Parade! I'm also a member of The Forest of Arden, a theatrical collective focused on creating site-specific immersive work. I've studied physical theater training methods in the U.K., Greece, and Japan, and believe that my liberal arts education allowed me to view my artistic work with a wider lens. Besides my performance work, I spent a year teaching Theater and Chorus at Taconic High School, my alma mater in Pittsfield, where I connected with high school students seeking to continue their studies in the arts. Last fall, I had the honor of being a part-time admissions reader for Williams College, where I worked side by side with Admissions Officers to find extraordinary students in a highly selective admissions process. I have first-hand experience with the admissions process, with a particular affinity for the liberal and performing arts. I'm excited to help students show their best authentic selves in their applications and make the process enjoyable, equitable, and rewarding for everyone! It's nice to meet you!

University of Pennsylvania

Hello! I'm Favor, currently a graduate student at Princeton getting my M.Arch. My advising experience is with Matriculate; I went through their program when applying to university and became an advisor for the program at Penn! I, along with two of my peers, helped set up Penn's Matriculate chapter as the advising fellow leadership team. During that time, I advised three students through the college application and enrollment process, with acceptances from University of Miami (with a full tuition scholarship), University of South Florida, Penn State (with Provost award), Rutgers, Stony Brook, and more! I especially love essay brainstorming and writing due to my heavy writing background in philosophy and general love for crafting compelling, memorable personal narratives. I've also informally talked with students applying to the Ivies; as a Penn student, I can share my experience applying, and speak to the culture, workload, extracurriculars, etc. of an Ivy-league institution. I look forward to meeting you!

Brown University
Hi! My name is Bailee Peralto and I am a recent graduate from Brown University. I have five years of experience working with high school students on college applications. I specialize in advising on scholarships and financial aid, staying on track with deadlines, deciding on a school list, and crafting strong college essays. As a first-generation college student myself, I love being able to support other first-generation students in their college application journey. At Brown I was involved in Model United Nations, I was a Writing Fellow, and I was a Co-Programmer for the Multiracial Heritage Series at the Brown Center for Students of Color where I'm involved in activism and community organizing. I also worked as a Policy Intern for the Mental Health Association of Rhode Island. I really enjoy working with students on crafting their applications to make their college dreams come true!
