My favorite school tradition is the Ring Ceremony. I love that the senior girls get to show the bonds they have created with the junior class and welcome them into their final year at Convent.

Favorite Subjects
My three favorite subjects are Math, Biology and Computer Science. I have had great teachers for all three years in these subjects. I love how hands-on my Biology class is and I love doing all the practice programs in Computer Science.

Favorite School Activity
My favorite school activity is cross-country/track. It is one of the few co-ed sports at our school so it is a great way to become friends with the Stuart Hall guys. Running helps me release any stress I have, manage my time and feel good about myself, all while spending time with my friends.

Favorite School Tradition
My favorite school tradition is the Ring Ceremony. I love that the senior girls get to show the bonds they have created with the junior class and welcome them into their final year at Convent. I have loved watching this ceremony for the past two years and I am super excited to participate this year, and receive a piece of jewelry that connects me with girls who have graduated from all the Sacred Heart schools over the past century.

Favorite Space/Classroom on Campus
My favorite space on campus is the Williams Library. I love the old-fashioned feeling of the library, and the view out the large window is breathtaking. It is probably the calmest place on campus, and I love going in there if I need to relax a little.

Best Part of Your Day
While not a class or school activity, I actually look forward to walking into the marble mansion each morning. It sounds cheesy, but I think that is always the most exciting part of the day because everyone is chatting about homework, or what happened last night, or what's happening that day. We may not have gotten a lot of sleep the night before, but everyone is always excited to see their friends when they walk into school and I love that energy.

Favorite School Project
I am most proud of my Sophomore Capstone project on the drought in California. While it was just a school project, I learned great interviewing skills and learned tons on a subject I am passionate about. I interviewed the CEO of a conservation company centered in San Francisco, a farm adviser in southern California and a local farmer, to name a few. We worked on our capstone projects for weeks and I was very pleased with the results.

Benefits of Single-Sex Classes, Co-ed Community
Going to both a single-sex and co-ed school really is the best of both worlds. The girls that I go to school with are like sisters and I feel that that kind of relationship can only be fostered in an all-girls environment. While I love the all-girls environment, I also enjoy having friends at Stuart Hall because they always have different perspectives in class and are super fun to be around.

Last Book Read That Was Not Assigned
Yes, Please! by Amy Poehler

Future Career Path/Fields of Interest
I see myself pursuing a career in the Math, Science, Computer world. Hopefully my future profession will be some combination of the three. I really want my career to have a beneficial effect on other people because I have been so privileged my entire life and I feel it is my duty to give back to the world in whatever career path I go down.
