This month we had the pleasure of having
WRITE253 come to our school to do a personal essay workshop for our students.
We invited sophomores, juniors & seniors who have plans to go to college
Many of our students come to Oakland after
falling behind in their courses, and often their GPAs are not wuite up to
college standards. This is not because our students are not bright, but often
because of difficulties in their lives outside of shool. The personal essay
portion of a college application allows for students to give insight into their
lives, to paint a picture of the person they really are, and the person they
hope to become.
With the help of WRITE253, our students were
able to get a start to this essay under their belt and we are so thankful for
their support of our students! We can't wait for them to come back in January!
