"As a parent, it was great to take the stress of the essay off our son. Due to time restraints and finishing up senior projects, we were worried about getting it in on time. Through many emails, Lara and he worked on finding, his voice, his story and his reasons for attending the college. Not only was the work stress free, our son had his essay in on time, and was accepted to his number one choice Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston."  - Michelle Brescia 

"Lara was unbelieveably helpful with my college essay. She helped me express my story and highlight my passions in a unique way. Together we took my essay from great to astounding. Without her help, I doubt I would be going to Middlebury next year."
