Graduating Grade: 12
“I’ll miss my friends and the Grade 7 girls the most. Havergal’s greatest strengths are the amazing people within it.”
How do you think Havergal College has prepared you for life after graduation? Havergal does a great job of celebrating more than just academics. I’m prepared to accept success in its different forms and according to what is important to me.
How does it feel to be awarded valedictorian? I feel honoured and surprised [to receive the Herbert J. Mason Award]. Honoured because there are so many deserving girls and surprised because it means that I’m nearing the end of my cheesy high-school-movie stage. Did you have a teacher who inspired you? My mentors Mr. Nichols & Ms. Wade are the leaders I aspire to be. My philosophy and drama teachers Mr. Fredenburg & Ms. Morris have always embodied what it is to be a good person. What advice would you give to new students on how to get the most out of their time at Havergal? Talk to the teachers. They care so much and are always supportive. What are your long-term career plans? I’m not sure yet! I’d love to work in entertainment at some point though. It would be amazing to write the next Brooklyn Nine-Nine or The Office.
