“I started at Friends when I was in Kindergarten and am what is referred to as a ‘lifer’. Thirteen years at this fantastic school have no doubt shaped every bit of me. I grew up in West Harlem to a single mother who had four children. For me, and for my younger sister who started Kindergarten two years after me, this experience has been incredible and I don’t let a day go by in which I am not grateful for all Friends has given me. I want to be someone who is heavily involved in the community and gives back. I want to mentor and support those around me — something Friends Seminary has taught me through its Quaker education.”
