My favorite subject in high school was Architectural Drafting; I took every type and level of drafting class that was offered. I loved the design component that fit neatly within mathematical parameters (ironically I also enjoyed Geometry…), and I really loved building models. There was nothing more satisfying to me than when I could turn a two dimensional design on paper into a three dimensional representation that embodied my original vision. This ultimately led me to apply for Architecture programs in college. Eventually my love of Art History won out, but I wouldn’t have discovered that passion if I hadn’t started with the Architectural component!
Try everything! This place really is magical, and all of the faculty truly support students in anything that they are interested in doing. You never know what passion you might discover if you try something new!
The most rewarding part for me is watching our students grow during their time here. It is amazing to see the transformation that can happen for girls here; we really do a tremendous job of empowering the next generation of female leaders!
