Books purchased via Harvard and Hardship LLC include a signed, personalized message from Angel.
Angel was delighted when God answered her prayer to attend the school of her dreams. However, when she stepped onto the Harvard Law School campus, it seemed that whereas everyone else knew what they were doing, she was fumbling around to figure things out. To make matters worse, the Imposter Syndrome haunted her as she walked the halls and sat in classrooms, whispering that as a poor minority woman, Angel didn’t really belong at such an elite institution. Along with providing a behind-the-scenes perspective of life as a Harvard Law student, Harvard and Hardship unveils the hidden playbook of college and law school success, including:
- admissions advice,
- practical “how to” study tips,
- strategies for final exam and final paper success,
- and maintaining confidence in academic and intellectual spaces.
Harvard & Hardship is the ultimate guide to college and law school.
