STATEMENTS OF PURPOSE
“While applying for my MBA, Ali reviewed and edited my personal statements and résumé. His edits were thoughtful, engaging, and constructive. Down to the details — between word choice, comma placements, sentence syntax — he polished my personal statement into a concise reflection that was full of character and showcased by passions. I was accepted into the program on a Dean’s Scholarship, and I was told my personal statement is what helped me stand out as an applicant. Without hesitation, Ali has been the most effective editor I’ve worked with.’-Mariam Jalloul, Legislative Assistant to Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib
“I reached out to Ali for help editing dozens of essays when I applied to medical school last year. Ali eased an extremely difficult process — saving me time, energy, and unnecessary stress. I was BLOWN AWAY when I received high-quality revisions that drastically improved my writing while maintaining the integrity of my work. Thanks to Ali’s constructive feedback, attention to detail, and professional turnaround time, I confidently applied to nearly 20 medical schools and will be attending a top institution this fall. Ali is my first and ONLY choice for any proofreading needs.“-Julia Haidar, Brehm Scholar, U of M Medical School
RESUMES | CV’S
“Ali was beyond helpful! I went from having a résumé I was not confident in, to one I am beyond proud of. He worked with me on such a short timeline… and yet the final product was nothing short of amazing! I will come back and highly recommend Ali to anybody building a résumé — if you are applying for a job, I guarantee Ali will get you to where you need to be!’Luay Shalabi, Student and aspiring Law Enforcement Professional
LEADERSHIP / MINDSET COACHING
BE FREE! Break the cycle of starting then sabotaging your goals. In your first FREE session, I will introduce you to the world-changing method called “Immunity to Change (ITC),” rooted in Adult Development psychology. I was trained in this method at Harvard by Dr. Bob Kegan, the father/founder of this school of psychology and its methods.
“Working with Dr. Ali has been a very positive experience. First off he actively listens and gives me feedback that is actually helpful. He is genuine in his conversations and that makes me feel comfortable. As part of the coaching we have been working on ITC (Immunity to Change Map). This map makes you think about a problem and forces you to look at the problem from different angles. It’s truly an eye opener. Every week I look forward to our meeting and it excites me how I have improved in my leadership role.‘-Hector Gutierrez, Migrant Ed. Coordinator, Lost Hills, CA
