I took Cristina’s course in late 2013. At first, she pushed us to do “free writing” and creative writing assignments to enhance our writing capabilities. After that, she guided us to complete our Personal Statement (PS), Supplement Essays, and CV. She also explained a lot about how the Admissions process worked. The course only officially lasted for about 2 months, but she worked with me way past when the course was over (until I was officially admitted and I had the amount of scholarship I needed). In other words, she helped me because she cared about the results.

Apart from that, I learnt a lot from Cristina. I learnt how to be professional when I sent the emails and asked her for help. I am still grateful the day that I met her. Without Cristina, I may never have achieved this success.
