I'm currently a 4th year graduate student in the PhD Metabolic Biology program at UC Berkeley located in Berkeley, California. The Bay Area is an exciting place! There is a lot to do, see, explore, and the amount of quality science that happens here is always inspiring. I came to study at Berkeley because I wanted to attend an institution that offered excellent science and training opportunities, while simultaneously allowing me to explore and enjoy my surroundings. UC Berkeley was the perfect fit. :)
I would love to talk to you more about applying to and/or interviewing at Berkeley, what life is like in the Bay Area and in graduate school, and any general science or graduate school questions you may have. I have taught English abroad (via a Fulbright Fellowship), and am happy to help with essays/personal statements/etc. I also am a recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (NSF GRFP), and am available for editing and helping with that application process as well.
Please contact me if you have any questions and/or are interested in hiring me to help you. Best of luck!
