Graduating Grade: 12
“I know that the confidence that Branksome has inspired in me is incredibly valuable.”
How does it feel to be awarded valedictorian? It was an incredible honour to have been elected as valedictorian, especially because I was voted in by my fellow graduates. Did you have a teacher who inspired you? An aspect of Branksome that struck me right away, when I started in Grade 10, was how incredible all of the teachers are. The passion that they have for their subjects leaps out at you in the classroom. What was your biggest accomplishment to date? I am most proud of qualifying for the French National Championships in Grade 6. It was my first year debating, and my French was not quite fluent, but I took the risk and did surprisingly well with my partner. What is one piece of advice you would give to Branksome Hall students? Enjoy your time at Branksome. Take advantage of the wide variety of opportunities available to you. Branksome is an excellent place to take a risk and generally pursuing your passions. What’s your best memory of the school? My best memory was Spirit Week in Grade 11 – where the grades compete in various activities. While we didn’t win, I felt more connected with my grade than ever.
