While working on my certification in college counseling last year, a fellow classmate posted about her experiences as a virtual counselor with ScholarMatch/CollegePoint that piqued my interest. I immediately applied and began counseling two dynamic and hard-working first-generation college students through their admissions cycle. I loved that the further I delved into their applications and essay writing, the more confident my students became as they identified their strengths and celebrated their unique qualities. As the months passed, they recognized their abilities that would enable them to realize their dreams. It was life-changing for me that I could be instrumental in helping them let go of their fear and work toward their potential.
