November 13 - Future Legacies Personal Statement Workshop
Future Legacies Program

As part of the Future Legacies Program, Alex Heimbach hosted an online workshop for high school seniors on personal statements. The key to a great personal statement is showing your personality. In this workshop, Ms. Heimbach covered how to craft a personal statement that shows who YOU are, from coming up with an idea to polishing the final draft. Key concepts included:

  • What colleges look for in an essay
  • What makes a good essay topic
  • How to structure your essay
  • Editing tips
This workshop was meant to guide participants in their college applications as they prepare for life after their high school graduation. Around 40 Future Legacies participants from high schools in Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, and Ohio attended the workshop.
