What activities are you involved with at Berwick?

I am a captain of varsity field hockey, student director of the winter musical, and I play varsity softball. I am also a student government representative, co-head of drama club and astronomy club, along with being a head tour guide.

What is something that makes Berwick unique?

The tight knit community definitely makes Berwick a unique place. Student and teachers are supportive, yet still push each other to be their best selves. I started attending Berwick freshman year and have been able to try so many different classes and activities, all while surrounded by great people.

Why did you chose to come to Berwick?

I chose to come to Berwick because I was looking for a more rigorous education from the school I was previously attending. At Berwick I have certainly found challenge, both through the classroom and extracurriculars.

Why do you like being a tour guide?

I love being a tour guide because I am really proud of where I go to school and I enjoy being able to show people why Berwick is so special.
