BENEFITING: DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
ORGANIZER: DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
Dominican Academy has been a place I've called home for the past 4 years and it will be a place I call home forever. Your donation will help DA be a home for generations of smart girls to flourish into intelligent women.
I've loved DA since I heard about it from a close family friend of mine that was graduating the year I was in the 4th grade. It's crazy to think that a 4th grader was already looking at high school but here I am, 8 whole years later, still as in love with it as I was when I was 9.
DA has provided countless opportunies for me and I want those opportunities to be available for girls like me who take pride in their intelligence and want to use it for the betterment of themselves and the world around them. Freshmen year I found the most amazing group of girls ever to call classmates and ever since I have called them my family. In sophomore year, I was able to travel to Germany with some of my closest friends. Junior year reminded me how much I love science and math with teachers like Sr. Pat and Mr. Rosada to guide me. As for senior year, I'm learning about prophets of nonviolence that have shaped the world around us and how we can emulate them, but the possibilities are endless because who knows what the future holds? (hopefully it holds some college acceptance letters :D)
DA has given me so much and the people that provide me with these things work tirelessly and I am so thankful for them, and by donating you'll be helping me thank them for all they have done, and they have done a lot.
