MARIE PAULA LAURO
Graduating Grade: 12
“The implemented house system (like in Harry Potter) has allowed me to interact and befriend different people.”
How do you think Hawthorn School has prepared you
for life after graduation? Hawthorn has moulded me to become a very well-rounded individual. The interdiscplinary program has enlightened me academically, as well as improved my personal character through virtue. Their extracurriculars have further pushed me to improve my public skills and social skills. What will you miss most about Hawthorn School? I will miss the familial environment at Hawthorn. Some of the most wholesome friendships I have made at Hawthorn were through my house, and even after their graduations, they continue to support me to this day. What was your biggest accomplishment to date? Overcoming my fear of public speaking has probably been one of my biggest accomplishments. Overtime, I've grown more comfortable talking in front of others and begun to feel more at ease on the stage. What advice would you give to new students on how to get the most out of their time at Hawthorn School? New students should get to know themselves better. Studying is a very individual experience.
