"Because of Joel's guidance, I made big changes and improvements to my extra-curriculars, including starting a local non-profit initiative that has been quite successful.

His coaching was instrumental in helping me get this initiative off the ground and I believe it's been an integral part of my application. I was successfully admitted to Queen's Commerce and now I am thriving in the program. I am continuing to run my non-profit on the side and I am excited about continuing to leverage skills and experiences that [Youthfully] and Joel has taught me."

"My husband and I really can't thank you enough for all you have done for our daughter's admission into Queen's Commerce.

You have challenged her thinking and writing, and pushed her to position her past accomplishments in ways she had not done so previously. You also gave her the confidence and initiative to begin a project that I believe she will sustain and draw further confidence from as well. You got to know her quickly and taught and motivated her in a way that she really responded to as well. I know we engaged you to assist with the application process, but I really believe your influence will stay with her and she will draw from your suggestions and interactions in the future."

"Started my own business"

"I worked with [my coach] for about a year and really appreciated the amount of effort he put into developing me, as an individual, specifically. From diving into my interests and building onto them with [my coach's] expertise and resources, I launched my own initiative that is something I want to pursue in the future.

Throughout this entire process, I learned a lot about myself and became much more self aware. This highly resonated onto my application, and resulted in me receiving a Queen's Commerce acceptance, amongst other prestigious universities."
