Why Are You Glad You Chose Lausanne?
I'm glad I chose Lausanne because of the teachers and the opportunities present. Even before I moved, I always loved my teachers, but now? I love coming to school to learn from my teachers. The environment in which the students around me want to learn more and grow as global citizens is the best environment I've been in yet.

What Is Your Favorite Lausanne Memory
My favorite Lausanne memory is from my sophomore year during cross country season. It was the race before regionals. During the warm-up, I wasn't feeling the best physically but once the race began, all I had to do was run. The best feeling was during the last hundred yards: I caught the girl in front of me, got a new PR, and got 6th place overall. It was my first year running and one of my coaches, Coach Clagett, knew how great I was feeling and she hugged me, knowing how far I've come in the season. I started running at Lausanne and the team is part of why I love the sport and the school.

What Campus Activities Are You Involved In? 
I have been on the Varsity Tennis team since my freshman year and Varsity Cross Country since my sophomore year. I am Vice President of the Make-A-Wish Club as well as a Student Ambassador.

What Hidden Talents Do You Have?
I can roll a ball down my arm, bounce it off my elbow, then catch it: a talent perfected from messing around with friends after tennis practice.

If You Could Only Use One Social Media Platform, Which One Would It Be? Why?

Twitter would be my social media platform of choice. I love seeing The Office videos, highlights of the best tennis players, and tweets about funny IB problems from people around the world.
