Describe an exciting moment at George School.
When we held the #GSwalkout march to promote more gun regulation in the United States, it made me feel proud. Even though people are pro-gun or anti-gun, they see the threat of the trend of mass shootings in this country. It showed that as students, we have a voice to speak up about injustices in our world.
What is it like to live in a dorm?
Living in the dorm is like living with a bunch of your brothers and friends. You feel comfortable because of the welcoming community and the respect there. Everyone is learning to become more independent, but there is also a lot of help for you, whether it’s for motivating you to get your room and clothes clean or just managing stress.
Has anything surprised you about George School?
I never realized how diverse George School is with regard to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and mindset. This diversity has made me more educated about things I am not exposed to at home.
