I am a university student, Sci-Fi writer, and – newly – educational consultant, based between London and Prague.
My journey initially started with the pursuit of literature and support of literacy – I have written and published a novel, as well as led a fundraising campaign for Room to Read. However, with my entry at university, I have reformulated my mission to that of English and education.
The former is the title of my current degree at University College London, while the latter encompasses my efforts to help students with college applications through consulting, tutoring, and Personal Statement supervision or essay editing. Having recently gone through the admissions process myself, to both US and UK schools, and been accepted to 10+ of the best-rated institutions, I believe my familiarity with the various systems has granted me rare insights which I hope to pass on. I am currently open to inquiries and have worked on over 50 successful applications to Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in several countries.
Far from being compulsively stuck on university applications – though they did take much effort, stress, and time! – I hope to harness my knowledge to help others access Higher Ed, just as I had previously made literacy my primary passion. I see my current work as a stepping stone towards affecting real progress, improving educational equitability across the board, as well as realising my full potential even in these rapidly changing times. Since any and all schooling starts with self-education, I remain on constant lookout for opportunities to expand my knowledge beyond my degree: from flexible to multidisciplinary and from STEM to my old friend – Sci-Fi.
Key values of all my work: commitment, care, contribution (to others) and coffee.
Four funky facts about me:
(for those who are more pleasure than business)
- I have a varied cultural background and speak 4 languages. I also have a wishlist of another 2 I would like to learn one day.
- I have a notebook with the titles of all the books I have read since 2011. My younger brother has one too and we recently started competing for “Reader of the Year” title.
- I collect Starbucks City Mugs (and I obviously enjoy coffee, mostly home-brewed).
- My biggest adventure was visiting the US on my own during the 2019 polar vortex. I brought back some wool socks and, needless to say, a local Starbucks’ Mug.
