College Essay Boot Camp at India Community Center (ICC)
conducted by UCEazy
The personal statement (Essay) is an increasingly critical component of college applications, yet many students struggle to produce an essay that enables their unique strengths to shine. Join us for a 4-part workshop that will equip incoming 12th graders with the strategies they need to craft a perfect essay.
At the completion of the boot camp, the student will have created their first drafts of two Essays for College Applications – one for the Common Application and the other for UC Personal insight while receiving individual feedback from the coach.
Workshop topics will include:

Learn how to figure out your unique story
Common pitfalls to avoid
