On top of all of her involvements, Nadia works as a Customer Service Associate at Market Basket as well as a TJMaxx associate.

When asked to reflect on the most impactful experience of her high school career, Nadia shared, “Taking Philosophy my sophomore year definitely transformed me into a different person. It was during that class that I developed a true sense of self and started to value the thoughts I personally had on life’s big questions. For that class’ final, I researched beauty standards and feminist philosophy and that played a huge role in discovering what I wanted to do in the future. My final paper was on how the business world was changing to promote diversity and the beauty in everybody over unattainable beauty ideals. For the first time, I was excited at the prospect of working for, not against, my personal values in business. I have Mr. Rowley to thank for that. Participating in the annual Hosting Young Philosophy Enthusiasts (HYPE) conferences were also special experiences for me. Philosophy is something I will carry in my life forever, and it was eye opening to meet so many different people with unique perspectives.”

Nadia is deeply grateful for everyone who has helped her on her journey to success, sharing, “I’d like to thank my ETS (Educational Talent Search) advisor Katie Morrison for helping me throughout the college application process. She helped me so much as a first-generation student with parents who have language barriers to apply to college and ensure that I would financially be able to attend. I would also like to thank all the teachers here at Spaulding who prioritize connecting with students and care about their well being. Big thank you to Valerie Dunn, who I interned under at her skincare boutique Progressive Esthetics. The professional experience I earned working for her was truly invaluable, and it was a privilege to learn from someone so successful. Also a thank you to all my friends who made school days ten times more bearable, and my family who was always supportive of me no matter what.”

At the beginning of her senior year, Lily was able to participate in an internship through Safe Schools International, a nationwide organization that strives to bring awareness to significant issues that impact teens and schools. She found this to be the most meaningful part of her high school experience, sharing that, “I was selected, along with four other students from across New Hampshire, to help put together and run a conference that highlights one of the topics previously mentioned. We chose to talk about mental health in schools. On the day of the conference over ten schools, including Spaulding, attended the conference and we were able to hear from different school clubs/organizations including the National Alliance on Mental Illness or NAMI, and HOPE squad. When the conference was over, the group was able to debrief and talk about if we wanted to bring something like one of these groups to Spaulding since there was no club that talked about the importance of mental health. The group and I were able to start up a group in Spaulding called the Mental Health Awareness Club (MHAC). I am no longer a part of this club due to other issues but I am so happy that my internship was able to bring an important club to Spaulding and I hope the best for the club.”

Lily would like to thank her family, specifically her dad, her friends, and her teachers for helping her on her journey to success.

Those experiences definitely have helped me and will continue to guide me in the upcoming years.”

When asked to recall the most meaningful activity of high school, Savannah recalled, “One particular event that stands out to me as being very impactful is the Waypoint Sleepout I participated in during my junior year with NHS. The weeks prior to the event involved raising funds for youth homelessness, but it wasn’t until the event itself that I truly realized the importance of what we were doing. Waypoint volunteers came to the school to display an interactive simulation of a homeless youth, as well as show videos explaining the detriments and immense struggles of those left without food and shelter. This was an incredibly powerful and eye-opening experience that provoked an abundance of empathy, absolutely changing the way I look at and appreciate life.”

Savannah emphasizes, “My mom has been the most influential person in my life, inspiring me to authentically follow my heart and encouraging me through challenges and successes. My friends and family in general are my biggest cheerleaders, especially my dance family that has always been there, providing an outlet and uplifting space to be in after an academic day. I owe an incredibly large thank you to my teachers, all of which were incredibly supportive.  I want to give a very special thank you to Mr. Taylor Ramsay. You have guided me in making decisions for myself and my life while promoting personal growth and cultivating a space of reassurance and compassion for me throughout high school.”

In this ELO, I spent my B block helping out in a Global Studies class, which is mostly freshman. During this time, I saw what it was like being a high school teacher, of course I didn’t experience it to the full extent, not having to deal with meetings or very many issues, but I got to make lesson plans, help out students, grade papers, and overall just help Ms. French out. At the end of the semester, I had to write an ethnography comparing my experience teaching in an American school to different school systems around the world, specifically Chinese and Scandinavian schools. This paper, along with the entire experience of being a teacher in that classroom for 90 school days, provided me with a much better understanding of teaching and learning as a whole, which is obviously very important to me since I’m considering becoming a teacher in the future. It was such a unique opportunity that I got to take part in and I’m very happy that Ms. French was willing to work with me to build the ELO, as I can confidently say it’s been the best experience of my high school career.”

Shannon would like to thank her parents, friends, and teachers, specifically the entire social studies department at Spaulding, recalling that, “Every social studies teacher I’ve had has been so very supportive and kind and I wouldn’t be where I am, going into a humanities field at an amazing school, without their support. Specifically, thanks to Ms. Alisa Eaton, who I had for Global Studies my Freshman year, who urged me to take AP US History, which kickstarted my love for social studies.”

Additionally, I have loved the opportunity to teach dance, as it brings me so much joy to share something that I love with others. I feel that I have experienced so much personal growth through dance, and I hope to continue dancing in college and beyond.”
