I took both Ecological Biology and AP Biology at Dana Hall, and because of my experiences in both courses I fell in love with Biology. As a result, I am currently a Biology major in college. However, I would have to say that the African Studies course at Dana Hall taught by Heather Panahi inspired me the most. Mrs. Panahi is a teacher who is passionate about the subject she teaches, and because of that, not only did all the students learn the information well, but we had fun while learning. So even though I love science, I was able to enjoy history as well.
As a person who enjoys crafts and art projects, I really enjoyed the Senior Sophomore tradition. In particular, I really loved being a "Senior" to a "Sophomore." During the tradition, not only was I able to let my creativity run wild by designing my sophomore’s locker and sewing her costume the way I wanted, but I was also able to befriend a sophomore in the process. Just the other day I ran into my sophomore and her mother. She is now a rising senior, and I gave her tips about writing her college essay. As a recent graduate, it’s always nice to know that even after I have left Dana there still remains a network, similar to that of a sisterhood, which I can always harken back to.
My favorite sport is fencing. From my sophomore year to my senior year I was a part of the fencing team at Dana Hall. I was encouraged by my advisor to join. It was the first time I was a part of a team, and I loved it. I'm glad that my advisor pushed me to join.
