Laura, Class of 2019

June 5, 2019 | Abby Liu

Laura

Friends describe Laura as compassionate, confident, determined, creative, and unique. Sometimes serious. Also very fun.

Dwight-Englewood is Laura’s top choice high school and she’s thrilled to join their school community as a freshman next year. She looks forward to playing on the volleyball team over the summer. Attending the fall freshman retreat. And she plans to join some of the many clubs that Dwight has to offer.

Among Laura’s favorite subjects are math and history. For her History Exhibition at MSS she researched and presented about the Black Death and its impact on Medieval Europe. Her MSS Math Exhibition focused on two specific math problems and how they related to Zeno’s Paradox on infinite series.

When Laura thinks back on the many things she’s learned at MSS, she points to the Sixth Grade Memoir Project as one of her most formative experiences. In her writing she delved into the theme of identity. She considered who her classmates were and how they’d changed over time. Who she is and who she wants to be. How she can be the best version of herself in high school and beyond.

Laura loves her friends and classmates: they’ve become her second family. She hopes that as they all go to high school, they keep in touch and never forget each other.
