How have your experiences at George School impacted your college life?
George School’s environment helped me cultivate a really keen sense of critical thinking. Teachers in every department ran discussion-based classes that encouraged the exchange of ideas; this has definitely helped me stay ahead of the curve at college in sharing my ideas and insights because I was able to spend my high school years honing the way I craft and share my thoughts.
I know I’ve said it before, but George School’s emphasis on writing has been invaluable to me. Lengthy essays are no longer the daunting task they used to be because I’ve been writing them for years at this point — and that goes for my Spanish skills as well.
What are some ways you enjoy spending time outside of the classroom?
I am an editor at a student-run international political journal, research assistant for a project on historical geopolitics, and have served as Tournament Director for the Men’s Ultimate Frisbee team. I even interned abroad at an Israeli non-profit organization!
