Activities & Positions: I have had the ability to be involved in being on the soccer team, the basketball team, and the volleyball team this year. I have been an active member of the basketball and soccer team for two of the three years that I have gone here, and this year I started on the volleyball team.
Favorite Club: My favorite club is a tie between the board game club with Dr. Kinsella, and the card game club with Senora Marracao. I like them both for the same reason, and that is because we can still have fun, but we don’t have to do it with our computers.
Favorite Class: My favorite class at Shipley is STEAM. I like that I have the ability to code and learn that way.
What special moment has stood out to you over the past year? A special moment for me this year was being able to go to the diversity conference. I liked being able to meet other people in other schools and form those bonds that I have at my school with people I would not normally talk to.
What are you most looking forward to about Upper School? I look forward to the Upper School clubs and the opportunity to make more decisions for myself and to gain the freedom of driving soon.
Advice to New Students: I would say that you need to be nice to everyone and that being yourself is ok. If you are new here, make sure that you are a positive member of the community. One tradition that would be very good to take part in is Swamp Night.
