Groton activities: Cross country, track and field, ICAP (International Community Advising Program) board member, Circle Talk Speakers Committee, Black-Latinx Alliance head
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: My favorite class during Fourth Form was World and the West. This course speeds through world history and includes writing two research papers. I loved being able to learn about different cultures, while also being challenged with researching and writing essays.
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
Favorite place to study: The “bubbles" on the third floor of the Schoolhouse
