Afrisnet taught me how to write personal statements. In my opionion, my personal statement made my application stand out in a pool of applicants.

The best lesson from Afrisnet website was the blog post that detailed the steps of preparing a graduate application.

I would strongly recommend young people to take full advantage of Afrisnet guidance and resources as they prepare their applications. My advice to them would be to always follow and make good use of Afrisnet resources online and reach out to Afrisnet associates for further guidance. Ask questions when you get stuck and always strive to share your experience with others so that they can learn from you, especially when you have successfully completed your application.
