Ever since I was a little girl I knew that Trinity High School was where I wanted to go. I saw how it shaped young women into strong confident leaders and I couldn’t wait for that transformation to happen to me. I got butterflies the moment I stepped into the Trinity auditorium for my freshman orientation because I knew that I was at my dream school. They said that these 4 years are going to fly by but I didn’t believe them. Now four years later I am a senior who is about to graduate from my dream school. Trinity gave me a strong sense of community especially from the soccer team and the teachers. Playing soccer since freshman year has shaped me into the leader that I am today on and off the soccer field. The teachers helped me gain the confidence to speak my mind and helped me to realize what was important to me.
I can’t wait to build upon these skills at Augustana College where I am going to major in kinesiology and play soccer. I am happy that I spent my four years at Trinity and I am happy that I am able to call Trinity my home away from home. Thank you for giving me some of the best memories.
