The support you need to craft a winning college application from start to finish.
Hey there, I'm Dyllen!
I am so excited to work with you.
Colleges want to understand who you are as a whole person, not just a list of stats and achievements. Stellar college essays are pivotal for a successful application. Now, you might be thinking that your story is "basic" or "not unique".
But I will prove you wrong.
I believe everyone has a story to tell, no matter how big or how small. We each live by a set of values, beliefs, and principles – but as a high schooler this level of introspection may seem unfamiliar. By utilizing my Stanford education in design-thinking and years of experience in college admissions coaching, I follow a process designed to help you develop a stronger understanding of yourself and craft a stand-out narrative. 😇
"Dyllen helped me achieve my goal of attending Stanford, and I know she can do the same for you!"
"One of the most important decisions I made during my college application process was getting Dyllen to help me brainstorm and edit my essays. Her feedback helped me understand where my writing was strong and where I needed to go back to the drawing board so that I could craft the strongest application possible. I cannot thank her enough and recommend her to any and everyone!"

"Dyllen has the eye of a storyteller."
"Dyllen helped clarify different moving parts of my essay to become one cohesive narrative. By asking a number of probing questions, identifying confusing syntax, and pointing out opportunities for me to tie my complicated story together, her feedback made sure I presented myself in the best way possible. Compared to other services, Dyllen's focuses on capturing who YOU are as an individual. Because of Dyllen, I was able to show who I was and who I became in my story, and this is a skill that not many people can do well. But Dyllen can! Her teachings and feedback allowed me to create an application that I was proud of!"

Dyllen broke down the structure and made it a more collaborative and individualized experience, making it easierto figure out what to write about."

"Dyllen's program helped me so much throughout my college application process. She really allowed me to add structure to the process, identify what I needed to work on, organize my ideas, and evaluate what I truly wanted to convey in my essays. The videos and curriculum integrated into her course really helped me tell my story and be proud of my writing. It was definitely worth it! I would recommend it!"
Uriel – USC Washington
"Dyllen's advice enabled me to gain admission to my dream schools!"
"I was hesitant to do essay editing services at first since I didn’t know if it would be helpful, but Dyllen’s editing really helped me enhance my essays by strengthening the themes and adding clarity to details. Also, the short paragraph of overall feedback is really helpful as it gives me an insight into how my essays are perceived by readers besides the people I know. Thank you, Dyllen! And I strongly recommend her editing service to anyone who requires suggestions for their college essays."
