Everyone is so welcoming and open, and I love coming to school everyday.

What clubs, organizations, sports, service projects, etc. are you involved in?

Currently, I am involved in Film Club, Young Writers Society, Knitting With a View, and Mary Poppins, our spring musical. I was also in the cast of "This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, and This Girl Does Nothing," our fall play. 

What is your favorite spot on campus and why?

My favorite spot on campus is the Octagon. The view is gorgeous! You can see Old Town Pasadena, Pasadena City Hall, the Rose Bowl, golf course, Colorado Street Bridge, and the foothills.

What is your career aspiration?

My career aspiration is to become a neuropsychologist.

What's your proudest accomplishment so far?

My proudest accomplishment so far might be the lead role I managed to score in the fall play my freshman year. It was an amazing experience and I have stuck with Flintridge Sacred Heart's theatre program ever since. 

What three words describe you?

Three words that describe me would be empathetic, thoughtful, and intelligent

What's your favorite class at Flintridge Sacred Heart and why?

My favorite classes right now are AP European History and Honors English II. History has always been my favorite subject and Mr. Pals is a great lecturer. He makes connections across time, pointing out how an idea from the Italian Renaissance can impact a major event of World War II and into modern times. In English, we lead in-depth discussions about the ideas the text presents us with and find new details the expound upon every class. We ask tough questions and attempt to answer them from a personal place and from the text.

What do you love about Flintridge Sacred Heart?

I love the community here at Flintridge Sacred Heart. Everyone here is very welcoming and willing to stop, say hello, and ask how your day's been going. The all-girls factor is also a plus, and I feel that I've become more outgoing and confident in my own sense of worth and identity because of it. And of course, you can't forget that view! If I'm ever having a bad day, I can just find a quiet spot and look out at the city and I'm almost instantly calmed.

What advice do you have for someone applying to Flintridge Sacred Heart?

Take a deep breath and be yourself. The application process can be daunting, but it isn't impossible to get through. Just be yourself, take a breath, and take it step-by-step.

What do you do for fun?

For fun, I enjoy watching movies and writing poetry. A friend of mine got me really into writing my own poetry last year, and now I have a whole file I can submit to the Flintridge Sacred Heart literary magazine if I so choose.

Anything else you want to share about yourself?

I have started writing film reviews for the Film Club website! The site isn't quite public yet, but I'm excited to get our hard work out there soon.
