I plan to attend St. John’s College of Annapolis, Maryland in order to build upon the skills I have begun to cultivate at Lawrence. I am passionate about using my talents for the good of others. I want to be a force for good, and promote things like art, human equality, health, and responsibility toward the environment and animals. I currently believe I might like to be a high school English or health teacher. I look forward to all that life has in store for me, because I know I have a solid foundation of skills that I can carry with me to face any challenge.
