Class of 2021
Alicia’s four years at Havergal were a period of personal growth and calmness. As a Day Student, the school was her second home; a place where she felt safe, comfortable and accepted. Joining the Rowing Team helped her learn to push herself physically, while deliberating with the Philosophy Club taught her to pause and think logically before responding to difficult questions, a skill that she will continue to develop throughout her life. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she joined forces with a team of students at Havergal to create an online news source focused on global affairs (the Global Diplomat) in which student writers from across the world develop engaging content for readers. Alicia’s love of learning and her perfect SAT score led her to Brown University’s Liberal Arts program, where she is focusing her first year of studies on Economics, Applied Mathematics and Humanities. “Asking and attempting to answer the more profound questions both academically and beyond is such an enjoyable endeavour for me,“ she says. Although she isn’t sure what the future holds for her career-wise, she knows that if a subject entices her, she will feel compelled to learn more about it.
