Writing Coach Services + Host Me as a Guest Speaker
Trying to write that killer personal statement that catches the eye of an admissions board among the piles of applications? Need help writing a speech that is the delicate, yet perfect combo of emotional appeal without making people’s eyes roll? Presenting a topic to an audience, but struggling to get the message across clearly? Everyone has a voice & I want to help you develop and share yours!
Living in an age where attention span is limited and the competition pool is tough, what makes you stand out beyond your credentials is how effectively you can communicate your message. Often times, I hear people worry about how they are supposed to present their life story ––the pitfalls and triumphs that have built their character— all within a word limit. Other times, people struggle with making a bland subject engaging enough for their audience to care.
That’s where I come in.
Effective communication ––whether written or oral–– relies upon effective storytelling. And compelling storytelling depends on authenticity. This requires both self-awareness and an understanding of the audience you are trying to reach.
I have had experience helping individuals write strong personal statements, ranging from undergrad/grad school admissions to scholarships to professional opportunities and various forms of creative expression.
The first step in delivering a message is knowing with conviction + confidence what you have to offer.
What I have to offer is a diverse background that expands across various topics: professional/analytical writing, journalistic pieces, speeches, interviews, and creative storytelling. My background studies in journalism, international relations and law have given me experience in various fields. But, that is not the key to what makes my writing services effective. What I can do for you is to help you explore your strengths, weaknesses and to refine your message so that the end product is an accurate and compelling expression of the message you wish to deliver.
How it works:
We set up a preliminary phone call or in-person meeting. During this conversation, we discuss your project/needs/goals and we get to know each other since this is a collaborative effort. I want you to feel comfortable with the process.
We map out your deadlines + a writing plan that fits your schedule.
The fun begins! I want to help make even the most stressful or boring project/assignment fun for you. Writing is a passion of mine, and I hope to transfer over that enthusiasm to you.
My intention is that by the end of our sessions, you feel not only satisfied with your end product but that you have gained valuable writing tips to carry forward into your future endeavors. Who knows? You might even start to love writing as much as I do!
Guest Speaking Opportunities:
I am now accepting invitations to participate as a guest speaker on panels, group workshops, think tanks and in academic/professional settings. I particularly love discussing the healing power of self-expression, creativity, the art of communication, conflict resolution, and emotional intelligence as Millennials in the digital age.
