Being the founder of a service club that makes a significant impact in impoverished communities can get the attention of the media. This has been the case for a number of Ucan seniors.
The Huffington Post and the San Marino Tribune wrote articles on Project Lighthouse, a service club founded by Colette Chen, a Ucan and San Marino High School senior.
The timing of these articles could not come at a better time for Colette as we made sure she strengthened her UC and private school applications by mentioning these articles.
So, what is the take away for your teen? Use social proof in the form of high school articles, write-ups, awards to strengthen your student’s personal statements and extra-curricular activities within his/her college applications.
