Looking back, do you feel that Woodward prepared you well for college and life?

I will always be grateful to Woodward and my teachers there for the love of learning that I developed from an early age, which definitely helped prepare me for college and life. I’ve found that whether I am in the classroom, a work environment, or traveling, I’m excited to learn something new and challenge myself to try new experiences. I think the combination of Woodward’s culture of academic excellence with the high level of engagement with cocurricular activities has allowed me to balance my time in college and prioritize schoolwork while still being involved in clubs and campus organizations.

How did Woodward help you discover your unique interests and develop them?

, it was very common for students to take part in intramural volleyball, have a part in the school musical, and also continue to do well with their schoolwork. This allowed me to continue to pursue my broad range of interests and was something that continued throughout Middle School, where I had the opportunity to play the violin in orchestra while also playing on two sports teams. In Upper School, I had the chance to be a peer leader, work on the yearbook staff, and play varsity golf. This experience of not having to pick just one interest to focus on has taught me to always look for the next opportunity to expand my experiences and not be afraid to try something new.
