My college counselors already knew me and understood my family situation, and that made the conversations about colleges very easy and very natural. Talking about college, you can really start to feel insecure and inadequate, but they always looked at me as a person—not just a set of stats—and made me feel like I stood a chance wherever I was going to apply. When helping me with my college essay, they were careful, knowing that it was my story and it was close to my heart. They knew how to sculpt it and make it better without taking my voice out of it.
