What have been the advantages of an all-girls education?

Being with all girls, I have a lot more confidence than I would have had being in school with boys. I would definitely have been shyer.

What is unique about Sacred Heart?

The community is especially unique. Sacred Heart fosters a sense of kindness, which you can see in the five goals where kindness is reflected. Community service is also a huge part of our community, which is unique.

Which discipline(s) are you the most passionate about?

Math and science. Because I have had the most inspirational teachers that made me think about these two subjects in a different way. Less memorization and more understanding the problem, along with innovative approaches to solving them.

What does being a Sacred Heart student mean to you?

Being a Sacred Heart student means trying your best at everything and working hard and being kind to everyone around you – making sure everyone feels included.

What extracurricular activities are you involved in?

Athletics, including indoor and outdoor track and cross country. As well as, Admissions Club, Math Team and Service Club.

Which one accomplishment are you the proudest of and why?

The feeling of success I had in chemistry class and then my AP Chemistry course, which I excelled in. After initially finding it difficult, through the patience and support of Dr. Lim, I developed the right study habits which enabled me to understand the material and really enjoy and succeed in the class.

If there was one word you could use to describe what Sacred Heart means to you, what would it be?

Home. Because everyone around you is supportive and kind and it truly feels like a second home.

Who inspires you?

First, my classmates inspire me. They are always helpful and offering support. Second, my teachers, because they are all so passionate about what they teach.

As a tri-varsity athlete, how has having the Athletics and Wellness Center impacted you?

The Athletics and Wellness Center has made a huge difference. Practices are much more efficient. We now have access to state-of-the-art facilities, including treadmills, spin bikes, and the weight room, which is especially useful during the winter.
