1st year virtual advisor

Elemuwa’s father is a lawyer in Nigeria, and he lives with his mother and other family members in Georgia. By the time he had been assigned to me, he had applied to a few places, but when we reviewed his essays, it was clear that we had a lot of work to do. I spent hours and hours helping him effectively advocate for himself, and after we revamped his materials, he applied to Washington University in St. Louis and was accepted with a full ride. This was a family that really didn’t believe it was possible. Quotes from his mother: “I can’t believe it! It’s too good to be true! I honestly couldn’t sleep last night, just filled with thanks and joy. I’m still in shock. You read about these things and you wonder whether it’s real. Thanks a lot for everything!”
