“I am Knox.” Those were the words in my head after visiting my dream school, Knox College. I will be the first in my family to attend college; I know that when August comes around, it will be hard to say goodbye to my family, but I will be prepared to go on my own journey at Knox. Trinity has opened my pathway to college, making me a confident young woman with many interests. I am very grateful for that.
Some things that I will truly miss about Trinity are the amazing friendships I’ve made. Through all my leadership roles, I’ve met amazing young girls and I will truly miss saying hi to them in the hallways. I will also truly miss the AMAZING campus Minister Ms. Visser. She has given me so many opportunities to take a part of at Trinity and I am very grateful for that. Going to an all girls school wasn’t my first option as an eighth grader, but one thing for sure is that it has truly prepared me for my future journey at college. I know that Trinity has empowered me to do so many new things and I truly appreciate it.
And overall I would like to thank everyone who has helped me through this journey, a huge thank you to my parents, teachers, and even staff members that have helped me along the way. Thank you and I wish all the best!!!
