2020 has certainly been a very stressful year for most students, especially those who were looking forward to applying to universities all over the world, as they wrapped up their High School years. The Covid-19 pandemic unleashed a series of uncertainties : High-School final exams being called off, the rather abrupt end to the Spring Term at most schools and universities, the cancellation of fall and winter sports etc. The bad news seemed never-ending.

That was exactly a year ago. Cut to Feb, 2021. And we found Cameron laughing excitedly over his admission offer from Emory University. Despite all the setbacks Cameron had achieved the unthinkable! And we are glad to have helped his dreams-come- true!
