GET TO KNOW THE EXPERTS WHO TURN COLLEGE DREAMS INTO COLLEGE REALITY
COLLEGE ESSAY COACHES
TIANA "TJ" CHUNG
Tiana Jhurdan "TJ" Chung has been helping students perfect the art of expressing their personalities and passions through writing, specifically for the college application, since 2018.
 
She is a graduate of Vassar College with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics, and minors in Biology and Africana Studies. TJ is more than familiar with the demands of college admissions, as she has first hand experience, and was recruited and trained by Nicole McLaren Campbell while still a student at Vassar.

A semi-professional dancer turned "Math Brain" turned word wielder, TJ also utilizes her writing skills as a freelance Copywriter and Digital Marketing Associate - she even helps to manage AIM's social media presence! She loves food and spends her free time curating content for her Caribbean food-based blog and podcast, WongaGyal.
MIRA HANDA
AIM certified College Essay Coach Mira Handa is a junior at Barnard College of Columbia University in New York. She is an Economics major, with a minor in Art History and devotes her time to a Tutoring Program in Harlem, the Columbia Women in Business Society, and the Bioethics Club at Barnard. She also serves as a department assistant in the Art History Office.
 
Mira loves to help students learn more about themselves, and communicate it effectively, through the college essay writing process.
DOMINIC SAUNDERS
Dominic is a graduate with honours from Princeton University with a major in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and minors in Robotics and Energy.

Of all the cool projects he's worked on in college, his favorite by far was his senior thesis. He worked with 2 classmates to design, build, and test a fully-functional magnetic levitation hoverboard from scratch! He plans to pursue a PhD in combustion and energy systems, hopefully on the west coast because he does not like the cold.

Outside all the chaos of engineering, Dominic really enjoys traveling (fun fact: he went scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef during his semester abroad), contemporary dance, photography, and painting.

Dominic is excited to be an essay reader because he wants to help students find their voices, tell their awesome stories confidently, and show why they would be incredible additions to the colleges of their dreams!

SYDNAE TAYLOR
Sydnae has a passion for excellence - beyond being an AIM-certified College Essay Coach, she is a junior at Princeton University majoring in Medical Anthropology with a minor in Global Health and Policy.
 
At Princeton, she serves as a Residential College Advisor and the Vice President of Logistics of the Africa Summit. She has completed research aimed at examining historical understandings and portrayals of health and medicine.
 
She loves helping students find their unique voice in their college essays.
