Mikayla ’21

Hometown: Hollis, NH

Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: I was most surprised by how fast everybody became such close friends with one another. Despite all of the different backgrounds and places we come from, our small Second Form seemed to mesh perfectly. I wish I had known I shouldn’t have been so nervous!

Favorite class:  English. I love reading and discussing interesting books with new ideas and perspectives I hadn’t thought of before.

Groton activities: Basketball and crew are my main sports, but I also played volleyball and hope to try theater. I play viola in the orchestra and am a member of the Investment Club.

Most memorable Groton moment: Definitely winning our home basketball game against St. Mark’s (our rivals.) I was so proud of my team, and there was so much support from the rest of the school.

Favorite Dining Hall food: Tacos

Favorite Surprise Holiday: Second Form fall. My friends and I wandered through the shops of Cambridge all day long. We got a little lost at the end, but together we found our way back to the bus. It was quite the adventure.
