Which of the Town School values (respect, curiosity, belonging, integrity and joy) do you most identify with, and why?
I most identify with the value of belonging because it's so important to feel welcome and at peace, which is how I feel at Town. I also think striving to make everyone feel that way naturally brings in the other values of respect, curiosity, integrity, and joy.
What are your hobbies outside of school?
I enjoy reading, taking naps, spending time with my friends and family, planning vacations I may or may not take, celebrity gossip, Disneyland, eating burritos, Netflix binges, and being forty tabs deep down internet rabbit holes.
