The Matriculadies online personal statement workshop takes the nagging and worrying off parents’ plates, and allows international students to work directly with a live, experienced US based teacher to quickly and easily write their own, compelling, culturally appropriate and stand-out personal statement.


International students applying to US colleges are relieved from the pressure and fear that causes them to engage in the cheating, plagiarism and fraud that were all over the news last year. We give them a better way. In the process we empower them to do their best work, we teach them writing skills they can use in college and beyond, and we help them tell their story.

What I Will Do With $5,000

We have proof of concept, and now need to hire and train 10 teachers to help with capacity. We will use the $5,000 to pay a VP of Education to find, hire and train ten teachers. $2,000 will go to salary for the VP/ED. $1,000 will go towards facility costs for a one day training, and the additional $2,000 will be a stipend for our teachers to cover the training time.
