BENEFITING: DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
ORGANIZER: DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
I can clearly remember walking into my kitchen after school on a rainy day 4 years ago, seeing a small envelope on my placemat with a big blue "YES" on it, and jumping with happiness. I ran upstairs, took my sister's sweatshirt and wore it proudly. It really did not take me very long to say, "I'm going to Dominican Academy!"
I'd like to say that I've been at DA since my sister started her freshman year back in 2010. Every day I'd hear stories about the teachers and her classmates and was left to daydream about the days I might have there on my own. Now that I am here (and a Senior, too!), I get to think back on all the events and adventures that my friends, classmates, and I experienced. To name a few: Mr Muller's freshman theology class, Friday frees, impromptu trips to the park, and numerous occassions of wheezing up the stairs from the Basement to Room 8.
DA has provided me and my family with so many opportunities beyond just education. I have had to ability to see Paris, London, and Rome, to see the wonders of New York City, and to grow a better sense of myself. Not only that, but to meet some amazing friends, teachers, and individuals who have changed our lives for the better.
Contributing to this fundraiser will help to guarantee similar experiences to the future classes of DA and continue the school's wonderful legacy.
DA ALL DAY!
