"Ms. Gala helped me organize my essays to highlight my personal qualities and maximize the benefits I'll bring to colleges. I now feel optimistic about my chances of getting in to my dream school!"
— Jessica R., rising college freshman at UNC-Chapel Hill
"Ms. Gala helped me mold my ideas and words into a coherent, formal essay. I was so pleased how she helped my ideas come to life and helped me find a common theme to anchor upon for my admission essays. I've already been accepted into one University and I'm waiting to hear if I will also be accepted into the second place. I know her help made a big difference in my college essays. I was at a loss on how to tackle these essays before I met with her."
— John Bradley, rising college freshman at N.C. State University
"I left Ms. Gala and my son alone to work on the essays, but as I passed by the room, I heard her encouraging him and asking him thought-provoking questions that helped steer him. My son felt successful to produce an essay he was very proud of. I'm hiring Ms. Gala again to help my daughter with her application essay."
— Kim Bradley, parent

"Christa was a tremendous help with my son. She assisted him with tweaking the rough draft of his college essay. She worked with him to make the stronger points stand out and develop new ideas where needed. I highly recommend Christa. We plan to hire her again for our other children. She is extremely talented and great with teens."
