Sarah Dané TaïwéWilliams College

“The Misongi program didn't only grant me an opportunity to apply to top universities in the world; it also equipped me with the skills needed to thrive at such institutions. I went into the program with zero knowledge of college culture overseas, poor writing skills, and a lack of authenticity in expressing myself to other people. The workshops hosted by Ms. Veronique helped me learn about college culture, especially in the United States. Through the mentorship program and writing resources offered by Misongi, I learned to properly express myself in writing. Among all the components of my college application, I believe my essays were the reason why I got accepted into Carleton College. My journey wasn't all sweet and sugar candy; in fact, it was extremely hard sometimes. I felt hopeless in those moments but the continual support I got from Misongi, peers, and family got me through the tough times.”
