These past four years, senior Noa Siskind ‘18 discovered her own world at Lausanne. She decided to attend the school because her two sisters, Eden ‘14 and Lily ‘15, had a great experience before her.
Noa’s first days at Lausanne, she felt she was just seen as Lily’s little sister, but was determined to make a name for herself. That was no problem for Noa and her outgoing personality she carries with her everywhere.
One of the places her personality has shined at Lausanne is through her passion for journalism and media. She has been a part of the Lausanne yearbook staff and a member of the Lynx LIVE club for the past three years. Noa has worked from a being correspondent and editor, moving all the way up to co-President and anchor as a senior for the student-led broadcast which puts on shows many times throughout the year for the Upper School.
“The excitement I have for journalism and media all started at Lausanne and I will never forget that,” said the graduating senior. “I am grateful for the wonderful programs I have been a part of here at school and it has helped give me a clear vision of what I want to do in the future.”
During her time as a Lynx outside of the classroom, she has been a four-year member of the Lausanne varsity cheer squad and co-captain of the Pomcats dance team.
“Every year, the football team kept winning more, and the fans would get rowdier and louder,” said the University of Tennessee, Knoxville bound senior who plans to major in journalism and electronic media. “It’s been a cheerleader’s dream and I will never forget my incredible experience of being a game day cheerleader for Lausanne.”
These past two years, Noa received the All-American Award from the Universal Cheer Association (UCA), attended the National High School Cheerleading Competition with her team in Orlando this past February and was a captain her junior year.Her love for the sport extended into the classroom and led her to create a unique CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) project for the International Baccalaureate Programme. Every senior at Lausanne is required to create a CAS project, which is a collaborative series of sequential CAS experiences lasting at least one month. Noa, along with friends Lucy Callicott ’18 and Ceylan Metin ’18, brought back the Lausanne Pomcats. The project was a success as 18 girls joined the team and their performances were a hit.
“My love for performing inspired this project and it is a great outlet for anyone who loves to dance,” said Noa. “Members were a part of a team that encourages confidence, displays school spirit and works collaboratively together.”
It is without a doubt that Noa has made a name for herself in the Lausanne community and we look forward to watching as she makes a bigger name in the future.
