Client stories

Stacey-Ann Pearson

2018 Schwarzman Scholar, Tsinghua University

The scholarship was quite competitive, and with the work that Shawna-Kaye and I put in, I got it!

When I completed the phone consultation session, I knew that I could trust Shawna-Kaye but wanted to wait to see the service before committing to an entire application review. After receiving the first round of feedback, I knew that Shawna-Kaye had by best interest at heart and that the service would be worth every penny.

I spent the next three weeks working with Memorable Essay to produce the best possible work that I could be very proud of. The scholarship was quite competitive, and with the work that Shawna-Kaye and I put in, I got it!

R. Ateenyi Ishimwe (Class of 2020)

Presidential Scholar Award (Full-Tuition Scholarship), Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Shawna-Kaye meets you wherever you are—however inchoate your story and vision —and she works with you towards a structured, cohesive portfolio of application products.

I knew I wanted to work with Memorable Essay, but was initially hesitant to begin my correspondence with Shawna-Kaye because I was worried that I hadn’t generated enough content yet to engage any external perspectives. In retrospect, my regret is that I didn’t start working with her sooner. Shawna-Kaye meets you wherever you are—however inchoate your story and vision —and she works with you towards a structured, cohesive portfolio of application products (the questionnaire she had me complete at the outset of our working together was exceptionally helpful with this).

Ultimately, I completed a Statement of Purpose that exceeded my own expectations of what I could deliver in the time frame during which we produced it. I had a sense of reassurance that my work had been implicitly benchmarked against others’ given Memorable Essay’s broad client base, and I received input on how to better streamline my résumé (which wasn’t technically part of our mandate) with my SoP.

I appreciated Shawna-Kaye’s adherence to timeline goals and upfront communication about when she would/ wouldn’t be available, and consideration of brand-appropriate wording and narrative elements… something I hadn’t taken into account. She’s professional and thorough, and I’m thankful she was in my corner!”

Eugene Gimose – 2018 Consortium Fellow, NYU Stern

Admitted: Dartmouth Tuck School of Business, Georgetown University Consortium Fellow, NYU Stern

I got interviews at all the schools I applied to and a full scholarship from NYU Stern!

Writing an essay is a soul searching experience, and Shawna really emphasized that – not just thinking about words but the impact and end results that you want to have from your words.

She was extremely responsive and made an effort to understand my story and my vision before jumping into the essays. Working with Shawna made me adhere to my deadlines, meet all the requirements, and have a final product I was proud of. So far I got interviews at all the schools I applied to and a full scholarship from NYU Stern!

Cristina Mihailescu

Admitted: NYU Wagner

I was also able to identify a more focused direction for my studies and professional advancement, and I got a scholarship!

I loved Shawna’s constructive criticism, as well as the very specific and detailed suggestions on revisions /improvements. I was able to improve my essay tremendously and to communicate my goals and aspirations in a more clear and concise manner. I was also able to identify a more focused direction for my studies and professional advancement, and I got a scholarship!

Phillip Dube (Class of 2020)

Admitted : Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and Duke University

I love my essay, and if I ever get an office one day, it is something that I would frame and put in there.

I was worried about whether or not working with Memorable Essay would add value to my application, and about Shawna-Kaye’s ability to listen to my needs and provide the necessary help. I had worked with another consultant before, charging me $200 an hour, and I didn’t like my service or my results. My hesitations were assuaged when I started working with Shawna. She was very responsive and always made the next steps very clear.

Shawna is a skilled writer. She also has a good understanding of the writing process and knows how to get you to say what you need to say in your essay. I was happy with the essay that I turned in, and I have a deeper appreciation of the writing process and what it takes to produce a solid essay that sells one’s story. I love my essay, and if I ever get an office one day, it is something that I would frame and put in there.

It’s not a job; It’s my mission.

I want you to experience the freedom and fulfillment going to the right graduate school can give to you.

I have been in your shoes, and I know it’s not easy.

As a college senior, I wanted to run away whenever people asked about my grad school plans — I had no idea what to do; I applied to a master’s program at Columbia University while juggling two undergraduate theses; and, once I got in, I tried for months to figure out how I would pay for it, before I won a US$ 300,000 scholarship to pay my way. I can show you how to do the same.

A graduate degree can give you options… and freedom.

Master a skill and broaden your knowledge to serve society
Expand your network so you have colleagues around the world

University at Albany

I would recommend Shawna to people who have an interest in graduate studies but are not sure how to go about doing so.

I needed to talk with Shawna because I didn’t know which university admission offer to accept. She gave me important factors to use to compare the schools and also shared her experiences. I liked the fact that the advice was coming from someone who had already gone through this process, especially with my particular area of study (MPH).

I would recommend Shawna to people who have an interest in graduate studies but are not sure how to go about doing so. Based on our time together, I would say that she is truly invested in helping people.

You will receive the help you need and more than you expect. It is worth spending money on, because you come away with work you can use over and over again!

My view of the purpose of the personal statement has changed so much! I realized how important it was and my writing developed a lot throughout the process! This experience showed me that I actually have something to offer! Shawna-Kaye taught me how to sell myself and tell my story!

Shawna-Kaye worked so quickly and thoroughly! At no point did I feel that she was not doing what she promised. In fact, she did over and above what I expected! You will receive the help you need and more than you expect. It is worth spending money on, because you come away with work you can use over and over again!

Shawna-Kaye is current, honest, sharp, and knows what admissions committees and employers are looking for. She will push you to give your best work. Shawna-Kaye will not allow you to submit average work! I am beyond grateful Shawna-Kaye!
