Hometown: Mexico City, Mexico
Groton activities: Cross country, track and field, Groton Mentorship Program
Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: No aspect of Groton was more surprising and unique than the dorm dynamic. I was impressed by the close-knit community we became in only a few months. My dorm prefects made my first year at Groton all the more special and fun—not only were they mentors and guides, they became some of my closest friends. I was extremely surprised at how close I became to them.
Favorite classes: Sacred Texts and English are by far my favorites. My teachers in both classes pushed me to my limits. I thoroughly enjoy writing essays and reading great books. I have always been very interested in history, so Ms. Wallace’s Sacred Texts class was perfect for me.
Most memorable Groton moment: During winter term, my closest friends and I took a whole Sunday to hike to a broken bridge a few miles from Groton. After getting lost, finding our way, and blasting music, the whole adventure was unforgettable.
Favorite Dining Hall food: Chicken fingers with barbecue sauce
