Anna Sharp

Founder & Curriculum Developer

She/Her/Hers

As a low-income high schooler, access to college counseling filled Anna with hope for the future and opened up unimagined doors, starting with a full scholarship to Duke. After graduation, a fellow Blue Devil gave Anna another game-changing assist by helping her land a dream job at The Oprah Winfrey Show, where she got to create the first online classroom for Oprah’s Book Club. To share her enthusiasm for digital learning and the written word with young people, Anna started an essay tutoring service in 2012. It opened her eyes to current inequities in college counseling and evolved into HeyCollege, the first college access mobile app. Anna is the author of non-fiction for young adults (Morgan Reynolds Publishing) and a series of curriculum development books for teachers (Carson Dellosa Education), and she’s an enthusiastic member of the National College Attainment Network. Anna lives in Chicago with her college sweetheart and two children.
