Personal Statement is an emmy nominated feature-length documentary that follows Karoline, Christine and Enoch through their senior year and into college. The three Brooklyn high school seniors are determined to get their entire class to college, even though they aren't even sure they are going to make it there themselves.

They are working as college counselors in their schools because many of their friends have nowhere else to turn for support. They work tirelessly as peer counselors to realize better futures for themselves and their peers. They struggle and they stumble, but refuse to succumb to the barriers that prevent so many low-income students from attending and graduating from college.
