Christopher is pretty good at winning. They’re a champion ballroom dancer, National Merit Scholar, and two-time recipient of Yale’s Light Fellowship. If we include high school, there are about a million debate trophies, Science Fair Awards, National History Day awards, and statewide essay competition victories added to the list. In their free time, Christopher goes to a competitive spin studio, where they’ve only met one person who can (sometimes) beat them. And did we mention they speak French, Spanish, and Korean?
When Christopher chose to pursue a career in college counseling, naturally, they were good at that, too. After graduating from Yale in 2014, they moved to California and counseled students who went on to Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, and Yale, to name a few. In fact, about 20% of Christopher’s students went on to Ivy League or “Near-Ivy” colleges. As a counselor, Christopher expertly guided students as they selected their classes, clubs, volunteer work, and internships to make sure they could enjoy a high school experience that would make them more competitive college applicants. At Collegewise, their goal is to help students and parents alike by reducing their stress while being both honest and compassionate about the admissions process. (And let’s be honest, probably winning an award for great college counseling, too.)
