Founder's story

Unlock opportunities and overcome challenges with the power of writing.

Writing is a crucial skill that has the power to open up numerous opportunities and doors. It allows us to clearly and effectively communicate our thoughts and ideas to others, and it is a valuable tool in both our personal and professional lives.

Our founder grew up in a lower income, immigrant, and military family. Writing gave her access to the American dream and allowed her to overcome the challenges that came with her upbringing. She was able to use her writing skills to excel academically, and as a result, was accepted into Princeton University. After completing her undergraduate studies, she went on to attend Harvard Law School where she received her law degree.
