University of Toronto
A year ago, I had no idea that I would be applying to competitive universities across the world. I would like to thank The Red Pen for reading my essays, re-reading my essays, preparing me for interviews, shortlisting colleges, listening to me ramble for over an hour on calls and most importantly, for understanding me – my hopes, goals, and personality! I’m so lucky to have had the support I’ve had. I am incredibly proud, happy, and excited that I was a part of this journey – to meet interviewers, to write some extremely cathartic essays, and to self-reflect on my academic, intellectual, emotional journeys. Thank you for drawing not only the words but the attitude and strength needed for this process from me. Finally, thank you for supporting me through the journey of applying to almost a dozen different scholarship programs, for making me feel confident throughout the process, and supporting me while I made a final decision. I truly am so happy!
