About the Author:

Years Attended Boarding School:
2002-2006
Sports and Activities:
Chatham Hall allowed me to play competitive sports (volleyball and tennis) while simultaneously being able to participate in other extracurricular activities like music (St. Mary's choir and handbell choir), and photography. I also was cast in two musicals during my time at Chatham that helped me build confidence performing in front of an audience. Chatham is unique in that they foster leadership skills in each girl in ways that suit each individual.
