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 to join. 


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!
