Hamada Zahawi founded Write Track Admissions in 2008 and has personally worked with hundreds of applicants from high schools to PhD programs, guiding them to their academic dreams.
By way of background, Hamada is an attorney and entrepreneur, with a decade of experience working at the intersection of public policy, legal reform, and education advocacy. Hamada is also passionate about public speaking, having co-organized TEDx conferences and continues to train students, professionals, and public figures in the art of communication.
Hamada has spoken at numerous high schools, colleges, and graduate programs in the U.S. and internationally on topics including; admissions, higher education, personal branding, career development.
Write Track Admissions works with our high school seniors annually on college essays and admissions, guiding them through the process of how to brainstorm topics, showcase their talents to schools, and increase their odds of admission. The Write Track team consistently offers great advice and insight, taking a personalized approach with each student rather than relying on one-size-fits-all answers. They are there throughout every step of the college application process, providing individualized attention and sound advice, and equipping students with confidence in their own abilities and stories. The students who have worked with Write Track have been accepted into the country’s most prestigious schools. I could not recommend Write Track more for your college application needs!Zayneb S.

We allocated our assembly time and an additional lesson for the whole high school and parents, but not knowing how focused the new 9th graders would be for that length of time on a subject that still seems very far away for them. I had no need to be concerned as Hamada Zahawi kept all of us engaged and on point throughout the hour and a half presentation. He covered every aspect of the U.S. application process in a dynamic and thorough way, supporting the visuals with plenty of student interaction and personal anecdotes. His credentials speak for themselves, but his emphasis on the availability of financial aid and the importance of being proactive even if a student has not achieved the classic bar, was particularly insightful.
As we are a Cambridge school, following the IGCSE and A Level curricula, he also adapted his presentation to compare the US process with that of the UK and Canada, which we appreciated. We are a small international school with over 40 nationalities and the university application process is a challenge for most of our students and their parents. I am a lot more hopeful now that Hamada’s enthusiasm and positive message will inspire them to move forward with a greater degree of confidence and clarity overall, making our job easier and their success more assured.Sarah K.

The cavernous auditorium was filled with the faces of students engaged in a course on organizational behavior, as part of Cal State University Fullerton’s College of Business and Economics. Hamada Zahawi was invited to share decades of experience as an entrepreneur, innovator and thought leader.
Hamada imparted his formula for entrepreneurial success – Envision, Plan, Prepare and Perform. Hamada’s insights and candor resonated with students with entrepreneurial ambitions in the fields of consulting and entrepreneurship. I believe wisdom from industry leaders is valuable for students because it allows them to think outside of the box, learn from the experience of others and hopefully seek out mentors that can help propel their careers. Hamada ended the talk with a the four pillars of success: Family, Integrity, Education and Health.Haney M. (Professor - CSUF) U.S. COLLEGE STUDENTS
The workshop that Write Track Admissions hosted at our club was fantastic. Thanks to the content, which was highly applicable to the membership of my organization, the Society of Latino Engineers and Scientists (SOLES), our members were thoroughly engaged during the whole presentation. I also believe this engagement was brought about because the speaker, Hamada Zahawi, made the workshop very interactive, and also refreshingly fun, which was great because the topic discussed, which pertained to diversity and graduate school, is usually discussed in an overly formal fashion.
After talking to the membership following the meeting, I got great feedback, and it has personally made me feel that all the SOLES members who attended the workshop left with a better idea of what they want to do in the near future after they graduate, which was my end goal. This has made me very happy and satisfied, and I hope to work with Write Track in the future since they did such a great job.Juan G. (Activities Coordinator - SOLES - UCLA) U.S. COLLEGE STUDENTS
