In the four years that I’ve attended Trinity, I believe that I have learned more than I would have anywhere else. Being able to be apart of the IB Diploma program, while difficult, allowed me to gain skills vital skills for life out of high school. Trinity has also allowed me to meet my forever friends that I am confident I will stay in touch with no matter where life takes us. Without the amazing girls, teachers, and other faculty members I have met during my time at Trinity, I would not be the same person I am today. They have enabled me to become a strong, independent woman, making me no longer afraid to share my opinions or be my authentic self.

Coming in freshman year I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect. I only knew a few people from my grade school and we were separated almost immediately when we received our homeroom assignments. However, the orientation leaders, and of course Mrs. Bedell, were so enthusiastic and welcoming. It was easy to talk to the other girls and we clicked right away. From that point on, I knew Trinity was the best choice I made for myself. I have made many friendships that I know will last a lifetime. Trinity also provided me with a safe environment that allowed me to break out of my shell and become a more confident young woman. I am able to express my opinions and beliefs without fear of being judged by others, and for that, I am forever grateful.

Sophomore year I made the decision to transfer from Mother McAuley to Trinity. My closest friend attended Trinity and would tell me of all the fun experiences and opportunities she was given and I realized that where I was, was not where I was meant to be. Although anxious and nervous, I was excited to have a fresh start. I figured everyone already made their friend groups and that I was behind all of them. Coming in I was super shy because I thought it would be intimidating to make new friends. I was completely wrong because on my first day I met so many new people, made a lot of friends, and was welcomed by many. I never thought I’d feel so comfortable around people I just met. With only a short number of days left at Trinity, I’m going to miss the environment, excitement, and energy of Trinity. Throughout my years at Trinity, I have made more friendships than I could imagine and it’s going to be difficult to say goodbye to such wonderful women.

Four years ago, I would have never guessed that I would be the person I am today. Trinity High School has been my home for the past four years, and it has truly empowered me every day. As a young freshman girl, I was shy and quite reserved, but because of Trinity, I have completely broken out of my shell and turned into the confident and determined young women I am today.
Over these past four years, I have come to realize that the Trinity community is one of a kind and quite special, and you can’t get it anywhere else. I have made more memories than I can count, and each one now holds a special place in my heart. These past four years have truly been the best of my life, and I am so proud to call myself an empowered Trinity women. I am so proud of the women that I have become, and I am extremely excited of the places I will go and what my future will hold for me.
Thank you Trinity High School for allowing me to find out exactly who I want to be, preparing me for college, giving me countless memories and friendships, and forming me into the courageous, confident, and determined person I am today.
