My name is Maija Wallace. Through this website, I review and edit resumes and college admission essays for graduate (and occasionally undergraduate) students applying to Sciences Po and other universities that specialize in international affairs and are based outside the United States.
I very much enjoy coaching students to present themselves in a polished and professional manner. I believe that students with excellent experiences and qualifications sometimes just need a little help to make their applications shine— especially when English is not their first language.
My qualifications include two years of experience reviewing admissions essays and helping students to successfully receive offers of admission. In addition, I hold a master’s degree in International Development from Sciences Po, a bachelor’s in International Political Economy from UT Dallas, a certificate in Immigration Law from CUNY, and a TEFL Teaching English certification. I previously worked as an English teacher in Istanbul, Turkey, and spent a year as a Fulbright scholar teaching English in Santander, Spain. My work through this website is conducted in a purely personal capacity.
