Learning Without Barriers Growing up in the Shipley community, I have always been given room to do what I need to do to succeed. It is this philosophy that I think best prepared me for college. By letting me be myself and explore what I thought was interesting or exciting without barriers, Shipley allowed me to become the person I wanted to be. Combined with the appropriate level of challenge in the classroom, I feel Shipley has more than prepared me for college and life.
A Moment of Brotherhood My most memorable experience at Shipley was winning the Friends Schools League Lacrosse championship my freshman year. Although we unfortunately did not make it back to that level throughout my high school career, the excitement and brotherhood I felt in the moment that we stormed the field were amazing and easily one of my favorite memories of my time at Shipley.
Plans for Fall 2016 I will be attending Northeastern University.
Future Ambition In the future I wish to become a successful businessman. The personal connections I made with people at Shipley are a large part of how I got into business. I hope to continue making similar connections in college and in my career.
Shipley has prepared me to be my best self and be successful in whatever I choose to do.
