Episode #125 – How This Strategy Will Get You Accepted Into Your Dream Colleges (PPBC Student Interviews)

I’m so excited to be sharing this compilation episode with you, where three of our Passion Project Bootcamp students will be sharing their experiences and feedback about the Passion Project Bootcamp Program with you, in their own words! 

In this episode, I really want you to  understand how this ONE strategy  will get you accepted into your dream colleges. I’m confident because this strategy is not about doing more, and it’s not about burning yourself out or losing who you are as a person just to get into these high-ranked and competitive colleges. It’s also not about copying what everyone else is doing, because that is NOT going to work for you

In this episode you’ll meet our Passion Project Bootcamp students, Elizabeth, Shivani and Yashaswi, who each reveal how this ONE  strategy we teach in Passion Project Bootcamp will not only get them accepted into their dream colleges, but how this strategy transformed their lives as an individual. 

Mindset is key, and the shifts that you’ll learn in the Passion Project Bootcamp Program will lead to so many breakthroughs, including more confidence, loving yourself more, acknowledging your worth, knowing what you’re passionate about, and identifying your strength and potential.

I hope that you’re able to relate to these students and what they share today, and realize that you’re not alone in this process. I want you to feel inspired so that you can take action towards your dream!

  • The impact that negative self-talk was having on Elizabeth, and the big mindset breakthroughs that she was able to have after joining Passion Project Bootcamp  
  • How she learned the importance of just being herself and not striving to the be the “perfect applicant” that she thought colleges were looking for  
  • A big mistake that Shivani made that ended up holding her back on her college admissions journey, and the transformation that occurred for her after joining the program  
  • The ways that the joining the Passion Project Bootcamp led Yashaswi to gain more confidence and finally accept that she is truly a good applicant for colleges 


You don’t have to force yourself to be a completely different version of yourself that’s not you, just so you can look good and get into those universities.
I thought that if I wasn’t that ‘perfect applicant’ I had no chance `{`to get accepted into college`}`. That’s when comparison came in, and where the deadly comparisons, as I like to call them, just slowed me down.
Taking part in the Passion Project Bootcamp wasn’t just an investment in my college admissions journey, but an investment in my mindset and future, and for that I will always be grateful that I joined this program.
I can confidently and proudly say to myself that I am a good applicant for colleges. This is something that has taken me a while to be able to say, and I feel that I can finally, truly, accept these words.
