Promise Intern

January 2018 Chicago, IL
“I have really enjoyed getting to work with guidance counselors and students at King College Prep and Kenwood Academy High School. I have been able to help students demystify the college process (including selectivity, financial aid and scholarships, and essay work) and make substantial progress in their knowledge and application of that knowledge when it comes time to apply to colleges. Working with the counselors, I have streamlined college access data systems that track college acceptances, alumni data, and scholarship information. I have also assisted in planning college access-themed events to get students excited about the college application process.”

“The environment of the office is absolutely wonderful! I feel comfortable turning to any staff member with questions. Furthermore, the work that I have been doing has been rather substantive. I feel as if I am making meaningful contributions to the University as we strive to make college more accessible to prospective students. ”
