Shivani Parikh

Class of 2019

This summer Shivani was a Blumenthal Summer Program Associate and the Head SAT Verbal Coach at the Sleepy Hollow site for Let's Get Ready. Let's Get Ready provides high school students from low-income circumstances with free SAT preparation, admissions counseling, and other support services needed to gain admission to and graduate from college. Her main task as the Program Associate was to plan Career Day, in which the students that are already participating in Let's Get Ready summer SAT programs are given the opportunity to network with and learn from professional volunteers while also developing their resumes, learning about potential college and career pathways, and practicing their elevator pitches. As the Head SAT Verbal Coach, Shivani supported her Site Directors, taught students skills to navigate the reading and writing sections of the exam, and facilitated a college-going culture through guiding their research of various academic programs, explaining the FAFSA, and more.
