What students say:


Smith College '17

"I had no idea how to write about myself. Story2 taught me to focus on details: the gardener's missing finger, the way my grandmother chops tomatoes. I was admitted to Columbia, Cornell and many other schools with great scholarships."


Cornell University '17

"I was searching for a way to stand out from a crowd of kids with strong grades and the same community service. Story2 taught me how to write about the man who influenced me to take action, and the day I organized a community fair for the first time."


Brandeis University '16

"The night my brother gave up the life of a gang member, my life changed too. How could I write about that and not sound cliché? Story2 taught me to write authentically about things that are extremely personal for me and my family."

Story2 students are admitted to selective colleges with top scholarships
