Join Gabrielle Glancy Voices on the Road to College: Wednesdays and Sundays at 4pm PST/7pm EST on Facebook Live
Very inspiring! Thank you, Gabrielle Glancy for doing this! It gave me comfort and inspiration. You have a lovely voice and these essays are amazing!
Great idea. I’d love to see you do more of these!
Beautiful. Love it! Thank you for sharing.
Thank you so much for doing this! This young writer gives me optimism, as does your way of presenting him. The future will likely see him join the ranks of our great physician/authors. Your voice and expressions are comforting to watch. Great job!
In these crazy, disturbing, unusual times, I have found myself spending more time online than ever — doing research on COVID-19 tests, vaccines, cures, Face-timing with old friends, trying to figure out ways to help myself and the world in a situation that isolates us and makes us all feel helpless and vulnerable.
I have taken great comfort and inspiration from the daily poetry offerings Victoria Redel has been giving us on Facebook. These four or five minutes a day feel intimate, interesting and important. Her voice and her insights soothe my nerves. Hearing her read Emily Dickinson, Derek Walcott, Robert Frost, I feel a part of something bigger, something that has been going on for generations, that is as old as human civilization itself — the desire to give expression to the ineffable, to extend a hand (or voice) across the great abyss that divides us from each other, to find meaning in a crazy world.
I have been in the business of getting kids into college for upwards of thirty years. I live and breathe my work. It seems fitting then that I share what I do every day — help students find their voice and get into the college(s) of their dreams.
This is the first in a series. I’m hoping to do a Facebook Live every Wednesday and Sunday 4pmPST/7pmEST. In this series which I’m calling Voices on the Road to College, I will share a moving and powerful essay a student has written to show college admissions what they’re made of, and muse on why this essay works and what you could do to write a great essay yourself.
Please join me in these moments and feel free to chime in with comments, thoughts, suggestions and ideas. You can also watch the first video in this series on YouTube.
Keep safe. Stay well.
