What's your favorite thing about Ramona?

My favorite thing about Ramona is its challenging environment. I am constantly challenged to grow academically and personally. Ramona exposes me to so many new ideas, viewpoints, and experiences that encourage me to expand my worldview. Ramona's commitment to social justice has especially inspired me to open my eyes to the greater world around me.

What do you look forward to most each day?

My friends and the Ramona community at large make me feel at home. The support I receive makes difficult classes and busy schedules fun and enjoyable. I know they are always there for me, whether I need help on a homework assignment or just someone to laugh with.

What's a moment in the classroom that stands out?

One thing that stands out is the depth of the discussions we have in class. Being able to hear others' ideas as well as express my own in a comfortable and safe environment has greatly enhanced my learning experience.

Who inspires you?

My mother inspires me to be the best person I can be. She has always been level headed, able to see the bigger picture when I often can not. No matter what she may be doing or how tired she may be, my mother is willing to help other people, especially my sister and I. She is determined no matter what obstacles are placed in front of her, and she never loses sight of the greater goal ahead.

What's your favorite thing about Ramona?

My favorite thing is the sisterhood. I love that I get to have friends in every single grade level and not just my own class. Since class sizes are small, it is easy to get to know everyone at the school.


What do you look forward to most each day?

I look forward to growing a connection with my classmates and teachers. Without them, it wouldn't be possible for me to be successful. I also look forward to learning something new. Being in 3 AP classes has taught me time management and how to be successful in a college course.

What's a moment in the classroom that really stands out?


During Speech and Communication, our focus was to learn how to give a speech properly and how to communicate with our peers. For our final we had to put ourselves in the shoes of a famous person, talk about one of the most memorable moments in his or her life, and dress up as if we were that person. I was Jackie Robinson so I was able to dress up as a baseball player. It was really cool to see all of my classmates dress up and present.

Who inspires you?

My Mom's an alumna, and she influenced me to come to Ramona because she wanted me to have the same experiences and learn the same life lessons that have made her so successful. She continuously inspires me to be the best person that I can be and to be as successful as possible. I aspire to be just like her.

What's your favorite thing about Ramona?

My favorite thing is the irreplaceable sense of acceptance/community that is presented as soon as I step on campus. Our student body is so genuine and authentic that it allows everyone to be herself without thinking twice. I also really appreciate the fact that there is always someone to talk to whether it be a fellow classmate, teachers, or sometimes even a friendly squirrel.

What do you look forward to most each day?

Other than getting to see my friends everyday, I really look forward to always learning something new! In one class I can learn how fast the speed of light travels, in the next how postmodernism cannot be truly defined because to define it would go against the postmodernists' ideals, and by the end of lunch I could even find out that the following phrase, "Do geese see God?" can also be read forwards and backwards.

What's a moment in the classroom that really stands out?

I was randomly chosen to give a two-minute speech completely in Spanish. Not only was it to be presented in front of the entire Spanish 2 class in the next 72 hours; but on top of all of that, I wasn't allowed to use notes. As a non-native Spanish speaking student, I was extremely doubtful of my abilities to be successful. But through practice and determination, I was able to present my speech with little to no mistakes. This experience was definitely one of the more rewarding experiences I've had at Ramona because I learned I can do anything if I set my mind to it.
