McCall's company, BOLD Guidance, is a growing interactive platform that allows students to navigate the college application process, and mitigates the overwhelming to-do lists students face to gain admission into their desired colleges and universities.
"BOLD Guidance empowers students to be the gatekeeper of their futures, demonstrating that applying to college is an experience from conception to completion," says McCall.
