What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: I miss the interaction you can have with classmates and teachers. At every moment, you’re talking to someone, whether in class, hallway, Dining Hall, dorm, Field House— even in the Health Center. And I’ve had so many amazing conversations where I learned something new or learned about someone that I might not have had the chance to otherwise. Those conversations played a serious role in helping me become the well-rounded person I want to be. 

Powerful Experience: There were so many amazing moments during my St. Andrew’s career, but I think my favorite one would have to be the final Carol Shout senior year. It was the last big tradition where our whole class was together, and it was a really good time. Later some of us squeezed into Will Rob’s car and went to Wawa. So as a whole, it just reminded me of why I went to St. Andrew’s—to be able to have fun with my whole grade and to really get to know every person there over four years. To make those kinds of connections was an opportunity I couldn't get anywhere else.

Community Impact Project: My project with A.I. Dupont Children's Hospital in Wilmington meant a lot to me, and hopefully, SAS as well. During our trips to the hospital, we had the opportunity to interact with the kids there, and that is easily a top-five experience in my St. Andrew’s career. This year, Mr. Gold had the great idea to bring the Dance Company to the hospital to perform for its patients. I really hope these kinds of partnerships continue. 

Recall in a Decade: I think something that will stick with me is the idea that there are always bigger implications in the decisions we make; to always think of all demographics; and try to do things that will benefit us as a whole community.

Long-Term Hopes & Aspirations: Long-term, I would love to work in possibly wealth management or maybe work on finances for an NGO. But to be entirely honest, as long as I’m working as hard as I can, taking care of my family, and help those in the community around me, I’ll be fine with whatever life gives me.
