Hometown: Rumson, New Jersey
Favorite Class/Team/Club/Activity: The swim and crew teams always pushed me to be my best and my teammates and coaches were always so encouraging and supportive! All of my teammates always came to practice with a smile, ready to put the work in. My favorite classes were Mr. Torrey’s English class & AS Chemistry with Mr. Kemer and my Chempossible gang. Also, MDBD & L Dorm never disappoint!
What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: Being around the people. I realize now I took having my friends, classmates, teachers, and teammates so close to me for granted. I really miss the small, funny, spur-of-the-moment conversations that I would have with my friends in between classes and on dorm—and the spur-of-the-moment decisions that turned into super-fun adventures.
Favorite SAS memory/tradition/place: My favorite memories of St. Andrew’s are the random adventures we had, all the time: losing shoes in the swamp, walking to the crew docks, running around singing on the fields, and our impromptu swimming in the pond after junior exams are just a few.
Community Impact Project: Sophomore year I jumped into working with Special Olympics and I’m so glad I did. It was a lot of work to plan, but seeing all of the joy on athlete’s faces and how enthusiastic the student body was to help out made it all worth it.
Recall in a Decade: I think what will stick with me is how to understand other perspectives. St. Andrew’s has taught me how to seek out other’s perspectives and to learn and grow from them.
Advice to Underclassmen & Future Students: Always say yes! You never know what can come from a random decision to go outside or to the Dining Hall. Your homework will be there when you get back, but you only have four years at St. Andrew’s. Dive in headfirst, you won’t regret it.
Long-Term Hopes & Aspirations: After college, I hope to be in NYC working for an architecture firm—and I hope that I will still be in touch with all of my friends from St. Andrew’s!
