Creating a cohesive, compelling, personal profile for yourself
The 6 Dos and Don’ts
We all know that first impressions count, and this is no different when applying to become an egg donor. As most of our cases are 100% anonymous, your donor profile is the only thing intended parents have to rely on to determine if they would like you to be their donor.
Here are a few tips to optimize your profile’s viewing potential:
- Upload as many photos as you can and a variety of photos. Your photos will invite intended parents to look at the rest of your profile. Photos should include:
- Current pictures
- Baby and childhood photos
- Photos of your profile and close-ups of your face
- Free of make-up or natural looking photos
- Full body, modest photos
- Pictures with your immediate family
- Your most attractive, friendly, and smiling images
- Provide a description of each photo in the caption box
- Spell check and proofread. Applications with too many spelling and grammatical errors will not be approved.
- Give thorough responses. The more you write, the more the intended parents feel connected to you. Avoid one-word responses.
- Answer every question. We will not approve your application until your profile is fully completed.
- Be especially thorough in the medical section. If you are unsure of some of your family members’ health histories, please ask your parents or other family members.
- Take your time and be sure to click “Save” at the bottom of each section.
Here are some things to avoid when uploading photos:
- Racy, scantily clad images
- Photos with alcoholic drinks
- Blurry or very small photos
- Too many serious, non-smiling shots
- Photos where your face is hidden by hats or sunglasses
- Photos that identify your school, hometown or any other identifying information.
- Self-taken shots in front of bathroom mirrors, shower curtains, walls, etc.
