Gili ’20

Hometown: Johannesburg, South Africa

Groton activities: Varsity boys soccer, track and field

Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: Believe it or not, I did not know there were Saturday classes until the first week of school.

Favorite class: Definitely Drawing with Ms. De Jesús-Akuete. First of all, the teacher is one of the coolest people on campus. Secondly, it’s one of the only classes that’s therapeutic.

Most memorable Groton moment: Definitely has to be Prize Day. Saying goodbye to friends that you’ve lived with for an entire year is both a happy and sad moment.

Favorite Dining Hall food: The Sunday waffles and ice cream for brunch

Favorite place to study: The little nook I’ve created in the back corner of my room, next to the window
