Hometown: Bogotá, Colombia
Groton activities: Mock Trial, Sustainability Committee, Model UN, JV hockey, Circle Voice
Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: Sit-downs. I did not understand what the weekly formal dinners were nor what the old dress code (there isn’t one anymore) was!
Favorite classes: Court & the Constitution with Mr. Lyons since the class encourages debate and highlights current issues. At the end of the term, we did a mock court where some of my classmates were lawyers and others (myself included) were justices on the Supreme Court!
Most memorable Groton moment: Exploring downtown Boston on my first Surprise Holiday with my new friends. Not one of us knew the area, but we found our way to a comic shop, cannoli place, and Ghirardelli chocolate outlet, so it was a great day.
Favorite Dining Hall food: Fresh baked breads of all sorts during the winter and the Sunday morning waffle and soft-serve ice cream combo.
Favorite place to study: My hammock along the boathouse road
