Dr. Catriona McLeod went above and beyond to help me not only with crafting my scholarship application but also to mentor me so that when I did write the application I had something well researched, achievable and solid to create. I did not expect to finish the application with a clear realistic idea of where I am headed and the steps to get there. In writing the application I was completely overwhelmed and Catriona so graciously led the way to attack such a big application and to craft my words together so expertly.
When it came to editing Catriona was invaluable by helping me to cut everything down (by nearly 50%!) to fit within the word limits. Even on the application due date, Catriona was instrumental in checking that I made it in on time and for helping me with the daunting online form.
Thank you Catriona! I would not have been able to construct, write or hand in the application without your help. It was such a wonderful process and I feel much more confident in the direction I am going in!
