Hometown: Darien, Connecticut

Favorite Class/Team/Club/Activity: The lacrosse team was my favorite group on campus. From the coaching staff to the players themselves, people on our team seemed to strike a balance between hard work and having fun. I think this balance brought us closer together everywhere and helped to make us successful. 

What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: I’ve found myself missing my core group of friends. 

Favorite SAS memory/tradition/place: My favorite SAS tradition is the Frosty Run. It’s a great way to integrate new students and reintegrate the whole grade after being apart for the whole summer. 

Powerful Experience: Being a part of the football team was definitely powerful, especially when I came in as a new sophomore. I go to experience the players’ emotional motivation to win our first game under the lights against Red Lion that year. The team went from not having won a single game in two years to becoming a serious threat in our conference by senior year. 

Community Impact Project: It’s not much of a project, but deejaying dances with Griffin Batson was an experience that I think impacted the people organizing the dance, the students attending the dance, and a lot of the faculty as well. Given that people seemed to have fun, I think the impact was mostly positive. 

Recall in a Decade: I think St. Andrew’s has forced me to engage in myself, academically, politically, and socially. My general awareness of the world and people around me has vastly increased, and I know that this will stick with me for a long time. 

Three Words to describe SAS: Global, compassionate, unique.

Advice to Underclassmen & Future Students: Meet with your teachers outside of class. 

Long-Term Hopes & Aspirations: Like almost everyone, I want to be successful. More specifically, though, I want to buy my parents' house in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
