“Hi, my name is Katherine. I am a senior at Walker’s, and it is my third year being a Cicerone. I like my job because I enjoy talking with new people and introducing my favorite school to them. I hope families have a better idea of what Walker’s is like from my firsthand experience.”
My unique experience has been being on the equestrian team my first year at Walker’s. I never rode a horse before, but I tried it out and I made a lot of new friends.
My favorite part of the day is usually the time after study hall. As a boarder, the dorm faculty always prepare something special for us, like some games, snacks, etc. It is relaxing to talk with them and my friends after finishing my homework.
I have become more independent and confident as a girl. Walker’s has taught me how to manage my time – I became more disciplined and better at making agendas for my schedule. Also, living in a dorm has not only taught me how to take care of myself, but also how to care for others and be supportive. I always feel loved and cared for when living in the dorm.
I really enjoy music, so during my free time, I like to practice the piano and the flute in the practice room. Also, I will go to the gym to do some exercise on weekends.
