“When I was a prospective student, I could not visit our campus physically, but the virtual tour impressed me deeply with the inclusiveness of Walker’s community. My experience as a boarding freshman proves my understanding to be correct. Therefore, I aspired to perform the duty of a Cicerone. Now, as I successfully joined the Cicerone team, I am dedicated to showing our wonderful campus, introducing the academics, athletics, and art at Walker’s, and talking about more aspects of Walker’s that make it such an extraordinary place to be!”

What is your favorite part about being a boarder?

My favorite part of boarding on campus is having more time to bond with my peers. When entering Walker’s, I tried to eliminate my reservedness by forcing myself to socialize. It was relieving to see others who are so friendly. Therefore, my boarding experience increases my chance of getting to know others and even creating some profound friendships.

What do you think is the biggest benefit of attending school at Walker’s?

The most significant benefit is that Walker’s offers a platform for me to fully and freely express myself. I was provided numerous opportunities to demonstrate my abilities and challenge myself. This environment fostered my development in every area, including academic, athletic, and art, for which I am genuinely grateful.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?

My favorite thing is sitting in Abra’s during free blocks. I usually plan to finish my homework in Abra’s while listening to the noise of students and staff. Sometimes, my friends surprise me and join my study. Whenever I can study with my friends, I find it much more enjoyable than studying alone.
