Writing a Compelling Personal Statement


Mar. 11, 2021, 11am to 12pm

Office/Remote Location



A personal statement is an opportunity to share your story and reveal your disposition as a student and professional. While some students find it difficult to be vulnerable in their personal statement, the opportunity to show your unique personality can be enjoyable. There are necessary components to include in your personal statement to ensure it is compelling and articulate. Finding a unifying thread, avoiding cliches, and ensuring you are fully answering the writing prompt are all essential aspects to keep in mind. Join us for an interactive and hands-on workshop and learn how to write a compelling personal statement.

By participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Understand what a personal statement is and its purpose
  • Learn strategies to best organize and structure your story
  • Have an opportunity to practice writing and start a draft of your personal statement
