Which two adjectives best describe your school?
Caring and amazing!

Bryn Mawr is a place where I feel safe, loved and happy.

Who is your favorite teacher and why?
When you’re a teenager, it’s hard to get authentic conversations from adults. Ms. Summers, on the other hand, is the opposite. She is incredibly genuine, cares about what points you’re making in her class, or even when you’re having a simple conversation. She’s unfathomably intelligent and compassionate about her job.
Which extracurricular or activity is most meaningful to you?
Our student-led diversity board has always been a place that has grounded me. Whenever we discuss issues of race, gender, sexuality, or mental health in our community, there are always
platforms for others to listen and stand for what they believe in, and that’s what Bryn Mawr’s about
— empowering young women.
Which two adjectives best describe your school?

When you leave your school, what will you miss the
I will probably miss the culture. For my grade, we’re all so close,
and I can’t think about moving forward in two years without them. I’ve
been going to Bryn Mawr for 12 years and I am still surprised how empowering and caring
my grade can be.
How would you describe the culture at your school?
The investment of female education creates a feeling of solidarity among your peers. Bryn
Mawr’s culture of empowerment has been with me since I was little. I was always told that there wasn’t anything I couldn’t do, and if there was, I
could always work harder and be smarter!
