"Before I applied for Ivey AEO I had absolutely no idea how to funnel my ideas into an organized and effective paragraph. I also had no clue as to what Ivey was specifically looking for.

[Youthfully] helped me by personally reviewing all my drafts every step of the way. I was able to receive detailed and personalized feedback on all my extracurricular essays and drafts. [My Youth Coach's] thoughtful feedback helped me perfect my responses and after over a month of careful editing, I was able to create an effective AEO application that showcased my abilities as a student but also how I would be a great fit for Western.

I was able to get my AEO offer in March thanks to the continuous support."



"I was accepted to both Ivey HBA AEO and Queen's Commerce and couldn't be happier. [Youthfully] has helped me reach my potential by showing me that I can pursue my dreams even as a student, learning valuable lessons along the way and fostering independence."



"I received an Ivey AEO offer since working with [my Youth Coach]! The consulting services she provided have been extraordinary. Her guidance throughout the application process made it significantly easier and less stressful.

She provided step-by-step support and has helped me get accepted into Western Ivey. I strongly recommend her consulting services to all students who hope to gain acceptance into Western Ivey."



"I just wanted to give a huge thank you to you and your team for putting together such comprehensive resources to guide me through the stressful application process to Queen's Commerce and Western Ivey AEO. I have received an offer to both of these programs! You helped me carefully and confidently tell my story as an applicant in the most compelling way possible!"
