Favorite class: African Studies was my favorite class because I loved the teacher and what we were learning. I also got to travel to South Africa in the middle of the course which was amazing. I loved having a hands-on experience where I got to see the things I was learning about first hand.
Favorite Dana Hall School tradition: SPREAD (This a special tradition in which the Senior Class welcomes the Junior Class into the sisterhood of Dana Hall School. It is a time to celebrate friendships, empowerment, and community.)
Special person at Dana: My special person at Dana is Ms. Magiera, Director of College Counseling. She is amazing because she makes the time for all of the students who she works with. She is so calming and helps me relax.
Best Dana moment: My best Dana moment was probably turning around during Senior Sophomore and seeing 2 close friends from field hockey standing behind me. I was so excited to have the special bond with them and was so happy and surprised. We are still extremely close to this day. (Senior Sophomore is a Dana Hall School tradition where sophomores are encouraged with notes, candy, and costumes throughout the week by a secret senior, who is finally revealed before a celebratory dinner.)
Best part about an all-girls environment: I love that when I go to school, every person in a leadership position is female. It empowers me to shoot high when thinking about the future, knowing that I have had the chance to make a big impact.
Why did you choose Dana Hall School: I chose Dana because I loved the sense of community when I walked onto campus. The girls seemed so happy and grounded, and I thought it could be a great place for me.
