Which of the Town School values (respect, curiosity, belonging, integrity and joy) do you most identify with, and why?

Belonging is BIG for me because even when you stand out, you still want to try to find a way to fit in with others. Being at Town has given me an opportunity to connect with faculty/staff, parents, and especially the youth! To come into a space where everyone was truly welcoming created an easier transition to feel like a part of the community. These moments are what makes being at Town something to cherish and strive for.

What are your hobbies outside of school?

I spend my time with my family doing weekend trips to hike, sightsee, and eat together. I do enjoy making desserts. It's a process that reminds me to slow things down and be prompt because if anything is off, the goal for the finished product to be scrumptious can be a hit or miss. Outside of that I'm big on sports news, and I'm all about the Niners, Warriors, & Giants.
