This week, we welcome Ethan Sawyer, College Essay Guy, to #CampusChat!

For more than 10 years, Ethan Sawyer has been helping college-bound students prepare their college admission essays. Except that’s not how Ethan describes his work. He calls it “helping students tell their stories.”

Learn more about his approach to help students learn to embrace personalizing their personal statements and how parents can help.

Check out Ethan’s website: College Essay Guy. In addition to providing information for students and parents, Ethan has also made available his Free Guide to Writing Your Personal Statement.

This week’s chat is our #Wednesday’s Parent edition hosted by Suzanne Shaffer (@suzanneshaffer) and Wendy David-Gaines (@pocsmom).
