Episode #36: [Parent Interview] How Michelle Transformed Her Life & Got Accepted into NYU

In this episode of Demystifying College Admissions, I have a very special guest, Ursula. Ursula is Michelle’s mom and Michelle is my former student who recently graduated from high school and is now having a blast at NYU! I’m so grateful that I was able to mentor Michelle and help her navigate this journey with ease and success.

TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Why Ursula decided to work with me even though she had already hired a college counselor for Michelle 
  • What students truly need
  • How Michelle benefited from working with me 
  • What kind of role Ursula played in the college admissions journey to maximize Michelle’s motivation, passion, and success
  • What the college admissions journey is really all about

NOTABLE QUOTES:

Even though there are very good professionals out in the field, not all of them are a good fit for our kids.
You knew exactly how to motivate her.
Her professional, academic, and personal development started with you.
She has and keeps developing/discovering what her passions are.
What matters is that they are happy.
The most important thing is that they can find their passions.
Parents: we need to be very aware and give all of the resources to our kids - to provide them the elements that they need in order to rediscover or discover what is inside of them, not outside!
Enjoy the ride!
