Young adults who are preparing for college or graduate school are often asked to submit a personal statement essay as part of their application process. The Personal Statement LifeStories workshops offers eight two-hour sessions covering 24 topics to help prospective students articulate their story, identify their strengths, and discover the most impactful statement to include in their applications. Through self-exploration, participants in this workshop are able to identify and write a personal statement that reflects their passion and knowledge. This workshop does not include assistance with the technical aspects of writing, but will allow the student to examine different aspects of their life, leading to both an exceptional personal statement essay and increased self-awareness. The workshop, with eight to ten young adults in each session, will be offered at a cost of $499, including materials.
