As I reflect upon my last few months at Trinity, I think about the friends I have made over these last four years and the amazing experiences I have been able to undertake. As the end approaches, I come to realize how much of a family the Trinity community has become. I know as I move forward next year I will be able to return to my home on Division whether I am looking for love, support, or wisdom from the amazing students and faculty. Thanks to Trinity, I feel prepared to enter the upcoming year with confidence and courage to overcome any new challenges. Due to the IB program, I feel as though I am able to tackle any subject with a holistic perspective. Because of the international approach, I can welcome new ideas whether I am reading an African non-fiction novel or debating social issues in French. My involvement in Trinity’s choir has allowed me to immerse myself in a myriad of cultures. Specifically, our trip to Spain allowed our choir to travel to Europe and sing for people of all nationalities. I have truly had an amazing four years in high school, and I cannot imagine receiving the same amount of attention, assistance, or affection from any place outside of Trinity High School.
