Recently, a group of College Coach educators read the book Enough As She Is by Rachel Simmons. In her book, Rachel describes the cult of Effortless Perfectionism, the phenomenon in which girls have to be superhuman: ambitious, smart, physically fit, pretty, socially active, athletic, and liked by everyone, all without looking like they’re trying. College Coach is going to actively work to battle this phenomenon in our work, and highly recommend that parents of teenage girls read Enough As She Is to learn what they can do to help their daughters at home. Learn more about the book and the phenomenon of Effortless Perfectionism on the College Coach Insider blog at
