Is there a person who made a big impact on you?

My advisor, Susan Ross, has had a huge impact on my George School experience simply by being someone I can come to at any time. Susan welcomes me with open arms when I have an issue or just need some positive energy.

What was your most interesting class?

Last year, my most interesting class was physics, because it challenged me to draw science into real-life scenarios. The connections we had to make to answer questions made it fun as well as challenging.

Describe a memorable activity in a course.

Freshman year, we went on a scavenger hunt in Chinatown. Navigating Philadelphia using my knowledge of Chinese helped my Chinese tremendously.

What is it like to live in a dorm?

Living in a dorm is like being a part of a big family. Through dorm meetings and gatherings, we get to know each other and share our experiences and advice to better navigate George School.
