Founder Nidhi Banthia Mehta is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, author, entrepreneurship coach, award-winning storyteller, and unstoppable energy dedicated to helping students achieve their career goals by shining the light on their greatness
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all have our own journey and a story that we are writing through our lives - our own story! Every choice gives us a chance to pave our own road, We have nothing to prove to anyone but ourselves.
As an entrepreneurship expert, my journey has been intertwined with empowering students not just to dream but to create tangible, impactful ventures. My passion for guiding aspiring minds toward building both social and for-profit initiatives has resulted in numerous national and international victories in prestigious competitions. These successes are not just accolades but testaments to the power of nurturing young talent.
Hailing from a robust marketing background, I've honed an exceptional command over keywords and storytelling. This prowess allows me to assist students in shaping their thoughts and ideas with precision, ensuring their essays for college applications are not just concise but compelling, leaving an indelible mark on the admissions panel.
My dedication extends beyond essay crafting. Guiding students through a holistic journey from 9th to 12th grade, I meticulously curate their profiles, enabling them to shine brilliantly amidst the sea of applicants. Whether it's the Common App or UCs, I specialize in infusing creativity while ensuring impact-driven narratives in their activity descriptions, positioning them favorably for merit scholarships.
But it's not just about application perfection; it's about crafting a resume that echoes excellence. As a student resume writer and LinkedIn profile creator, I shape their professional identity, ensuring it resonates with their aspirations and accomplishments.
The heart of my work lies in the joy of mentoring over 50 students, aiding them in profile building and securing full-ride scholarships. Witnessing their journeys unfold is the driving force behind my dedication. For me, it's not a business—it's a passionate endeavor. I limit my engagements to a select ten students per year because every student's future is a cause close to my heart.
This isn't merely a service; it's a commitment to illuminate each student's brilliance through meticulously crafted content. Together, let's make your application praiseworthy and set the stage for your remarkable journey ahead.
