Hometown: Los Angeles, California
Groton Activities: Cross country, hockey, crew
Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: The connection that the faculty share with students at Groton amazed me. Groton's close-knit community of both my teachers and my peers ensured a smooth transition to life at boarding school.
Favorite class: Dr. Black's Ecology course was a highlight of my Third Form year. As a group, we consistently journeyed into the fields on campus to study the changing world around us. The course helped enhance my understanding of pertinent current events such as climate change and maintained a lively class environment throughout the entire year.

Most memorable Groton moment: My first sports competition as a Grotonian—a crew race as the fifth boat against Brooks. I was beyond proud of my boat as the dedication we showed to learning the sport throughout the term resulted in our victory!
Favorite Dining Hall food: Grilled cheese and tomato soup
