About the host

Sowa I.

Stanford MBA Class President | International English Teacher | Consultant

I'm currently a Stanford MBA (where I'm the Student Body Co-President), and have 5+ years of college admissions coaching experience. Before GSB, I spent time as a teacher (focusing on essay writing and story telling) and as a management consultant. Over the years working in admissions consulting, I have helped students based in the US, Hong Kong, China, and Singapore successfully apply to school. I'm here to help you create a stellar MBA application that can launch you into a top program in a way that tells your authentic story.

As a coach, I bring a structured, honest, and tailored approach to the application process. Beyond my teaching experience, I also have a BA in Economics, Psychology, and Creative Writing from Northwestern University through which I learned how to help people navigate their truest stories. I'm particularly experienced at helping prospective MBAs figure out how the MBA would play into their larger goals as people and as professionals. No matter how untraditional the path, I'm skilled at helping applicants frame their diverse experiences in a compelling and cohesive way that resonates with admissions committees. If you want a partner in this process, I'm your guide.
