“My essay mentor supported me along this journey by giving me advice on the countless drafts that I drew up. Through the many iterations, my personal statement became much clearer, and I became confident that my efforts would be effective.”

“My essay mentor, Lincoln, was unbelievably good at helping me brainstorm. He helped me realise the different avenues I could consider, before narrowing down on what would work best. The process was really efficient but also really inspiring. Thanks to Lincoln, I produced a statement I was really proud to submit.”
