Every one of our GEMgirls told us they planned on attending university after high school, but several of our girls also told us they felt anxious and unprepared when it came to applying to university. So, today, we are hosting a University Application Workshop for GEMgirls and girls in the Flemingdon Thorncliffe community. Tanya (Toni) De Mello, GEM mentor, and┬áDirector of Equity and Diversity Office at the University of Toronto (Scarborough Campus) is facilitating this workshop. The session will focus on writing strong personal statements – all participants will learn the essential components of a personal statement and receive individual feedback on their essays.
