Zebra Tales

Jacinta '22

Hometown: Mexico City

Groton activities: Model UN, EuroChallenge, Debating Society, Circle Voice, Investment Club, stage manager for three one-act plays

Favorite class: English because I find literature very interesting and am always captivated by the discussions in my class

Most memorable Groton moment: Prize Day. It was a melancholy day because the seniors were leaving, and I was sad to see them go but excited for them at the same time. It was incredible to see the strong friendships I had created throughout the year, not only with seniors but with other students. Because the seniors were leaving, my friends and I bonded over reminiscing some of the memories with our prefects throughout the year. It also reminded us how important our friendships with each other were.

Favorite Dining Hall food: Grilled cheese. Apple crisp is my favorite dessert.

At Groton, I have been able to continue to develop my passion.

  • Halloween Starts Early

    October, as I like to think of it, is the very center of fall. The trees have completely changed color, and the leaves are finally trickling down. It is finally the time of year when you can feel the crisp air outside. The time of year when sweaters are necessary and hot chocolate recommended. Best of all, the whole month has the spirit of people eagerly waiting for Halloween.
