Benilde-St. Margaret’s has taught me to set, strive for and achieve every goal I create. From joining the Mock Trial team in eighth grade, to participating in Speech, BSM has also helped me evolve into being a better leader overall. My experience at BSM has helped to shape and prepare me for my new role as a Mock Trial junior captain and an extern in a Judge’s chambers.

I grew up the youngest of seven in a large and rather entrepreneurial family. My father owned his own business, and three of my brothers and a sister have run their own companies. As a kid, my interests were deeply rooted in reading and writing – I spent little time on tinkering or technology. I graduated college with degrees in English, writing and art history.

In June of each year, final exams and graduation ceremonies mark the end of the academic program and co-curricular activities. The halls are less traveled but in reality, a flurry of activity still takes place in the weeks between the end and the new beginning. This summer has been even more active with the number of participants in summer programming along with a significant construction project.
