Andrew de Souza
Harvard University Grad
My name is Andrew de Souza and I'm the newest member of the Prepskills consulting team! I'm a recent graduate from Harvard University where I studied Environmental Engineering with a minor in Music. I'm currently making music in Toronto before travelling to India for environmental conservation work, then moving full time to New York for a consulting role with McKinsey.
In my time at Harvard I was part of the rugby team, started the first clean energy club, joined multiple bands, volunteered around Boston, led youth leadership workshops, and much more. I came from a public school in Oakville where I didn't know anything about the U.S. application process and I had to go searching through countless resources to find the pertinent information. I'm excited to share what I learned as an applicant as well as a student about how applying to colleges really works.
I'll be with the student every step of the way—through organizing a timeline, planning extracurriculars, and building the essays I'll coach the student to tell their story in a memorable and concise package. Most importantly, I will help students get into a great school for them. Fit is integral to a student's success after they're admitted. I'll have conversations with the student about what they're looking for in a school, then search for programs and universities that match the criteria.
I'm excited to start this journey with you all—join me on the path to achieving your dreams!
