Hometown: San Francisco, CA
Current Grade: 12th

What surprised you during your first year at Burke?
"How welcoming all the students were and how understanding all the teachers were."

Is there a challenge that stands out?
"Starting at Burke during online school was definitely difficult. But now that we are in person, I very much feel like part of the community. Although I would have rather started in person and not over Zoom, my experience has definitely improved since the beginning of junior year!"
