I am a sophomore from San Luis Obispo, California, although I grew up in Dubuque, Iowa and have U.K. citizenship, a privilege I take advantage of during my time off of school when I travel to London or Manchester. I attend boarding school in Connecticut at Choate Rosemary Hall, where I study history and English avidly. Outside of academia, I enjoy editing my school’s newspaper, participating in and leading discussions at CORR (Committee on Respectful Relationships) and playing varsity volleyball and varsity water polo.
