Hometown: Shanghai, China
Favorite Class/Team/Club/Activity: Noxontones has been my favorite. Members set aside their free time twice a week for rehearsals. Performances are high-quality, peers build close relationships, and we are a team bonded together. Most of all, we get a lot of fun out of it.
What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: A traditional senior spring where people socialize on the Front Lawn and spend more time doing what they are passionate about outside of class.
Favorite SAS memory/tradition/place: The Annual Christmas Carol Shout, as well as Baum, where I lived both as a sophomore and a senior.
Powerful Experience: The first time I sang a solo was three weeks into my freshman year. I sang "Heal the World," a song by Michael Jackson, along with several other students. It was my first time experiencing the tremendous energy and great support shown by the St. Andrew's students, which made me instantly feel at home.
Community Impact Project: I have helped the Communications Office to take footage at a variety of school events. One time I took the all school photo with my drone, which was a very memorable and fun experience.
Recall in a Decade: At. St. Andrew’s, I have learned to put down my phone or other smart devices and enjoy my time connecting with people around me in reality.
Three Words to describe SAS: Hard-working, inclusive, different.
Advice to Underclassmen & Future Students: Embrace the uncertainty of high school life and fully devote yourself to the experience. You will find St. Andrew's is your home.
Long-Term Hopes & Aspirations: I hope to become a person who knows both the American and Chinese culture by heart, and to become a part of the bridge between the two great countries, in whatever way that might be.
