Favorite Class/Team/Club/Activity: By the end of my St. Andrew's career, the musical ended up being one of my favorite things. It started as something new I did to step out of my comfort zone, and turned into one of my most memorable experiences. I wish I had gotten involved much earlier than I did.

What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: The physical connections with my friends and socializing around campus. 

Favorite SAS memory/tradition/place: Tuesday pizza holds a special place in my heart because it is a tradition I helped to uphold. I always took it for granted until I had to actually write the tongue twisters. This tradition is one of the things that has defined my senior year. 

Powerful Experience: Fyre Festival—organizing such a big event with so many moving parts and to see it succeed made an extremely powerful memory.  

Recall in a Decade: I will always hold on to the importance of person-to-person relationships and creativity unhindered by technology and distractions. Fun is one of my priorities, and sometimes you have to think outside the box to find it. 

Three Words to describe SAS: Tight-knit, creative, opportunity.

Advice to Underclassmen & Future Students: Make the most of all the chances you get. Take as many offers as you can. Join as many clubs as you can and broaden your horizons. You never know when you may discover something you deeply enjoy. 

Long-Term Hopes & Aspirations: I aspire to continue my work in film and adopt it as a profession. In terms of St. Andrew’s, I aim to stay connected with the people I’ve considered some of my closest friends for the past four years.
