What is it like to live in a dorm?
Before coming to George School, I had never lived with other people except my parents. Living in a dorm has shown me what it is like to live in a community with people my age. At first it was a challenge to live with my peers and to adjust to their habits, but I eventually got close to the other dorm residents.
What lessons have you learned on a team?
Swimming has been a big part of my life since third grade, and it is my favorite sport. Being on a team at George School has allowed me to achieve the swim times I wanted, and to get better at new strokes. Swimming has also helped me become closer with my peers on a new level.
