1.    We are here to craft your story, but what does that really mean?

2.    I do lots of different activities, am I setting myself up for great opportunities?

3.    What colleges love to see in a high school student

4.    How do we identify our strengths and talk about them to someone that doesn’t know me?

6.    Taking Calculated Risks, be different, especially when you see a possible impact

7.    Develop skills that will continue being used (how we can do that) and be sure to give back!

8.    What we write and what we write about, what kind of stories are involved, and examples?

9.  Why we write the way that we write, with a narrative flair that sparks the mind
