Writing Your Way To Success w/ Melissa Rowe

Writing is a crucial skill that can lead to academic success now and have a lasting impact on life later. As we approach the end of the school year 12th graders are continuing to get their college scholarship applications finished up and submitted. A personal statement and scholarship essay usually are required to complete most applications. These statements and essays can have a significant impact on the overall college application process and capturing scholarships. Gregory Nesmith, Aliah Harris, Kayla Daniels Redden, Siani Ross, and Justin Glover, all recently spoke with Melissa Rowe, M.Ed, about tips that she has for high school students who are writing personal statements, how students can improve their writing, and how to overcome writer's block. Melissa Rowe, M.Ed., is a Writer, Educator, and Founder of Capture Greatness!. You can find out more information about B2W at www.Bridges2Wealth.org.
