Sarah Frank, Founder

A bit about themselves:
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am a college freshman at Brown. I am also the proud founder of Simple Studies (Now Studyist)! Simple Studies was originally part of my online contingency plan for my school as student body president. My board collectively decided it didn't fit in student government so I decided to do it on my own. I genuinely believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to do well in their classes, even when faced with challenges such as e-learning or financial difficulties.

In my free time, I write, read, paint, practice photography, and bake. I hope you love the site as much as I do! Email me at sarah@frankadvice.tips, I would love to hear from you.

Position:
Founder of Simple Studies (Now Studyist).

Hello everyone! My name is Julie Phan, and I am a sophomore (Class of '24) in high school locating in the city of San Antonio. One of my experiences of being an exceptional leader; is being elected president and concertmaster for my orchestra group just at the start of my freshmen year already! Outside of school, I am the president & founder of an Instagram page I run called (@julescoffeecorner_), and I am also one of the regional representatives for Studyist. My driven passion is to offer help to other young individuals like me in my area to head in the right direction of academic success regardless of the economic disparities in the school districts of San Antonio. Although not knowing just yet what I specifically to major or do in the next four years...I definitely am interested currently in the field of studies like "Business economics", "English literature", and "Asian-American Studies" altogether.
