ORGANIZER: DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
Dominican Academy is an amazing instution, one that increasingly shapes smart girls into intelligent women as their days there go on.
I am so proud to be able to go to a school with such a long and rich history, and in such a beautiful building. Attending DA has had a tremedous effect on my self-confidence, and my identity as a girl with a sense of intellectual curiosity. I have had limitless opportunities to try my hand at a variety of activities, including but not limited to, writing for the student newspaper, the Literary Journal and learning computer programming with Girls Who Code. I have also had opportunities to stretch myself with challenging AP classes and electives.
One of the greatest elements of the DA experience is our neverending atmosphere of community and acceptance. The sense of belonging I felt when I visited DA for the first time greatly influenced my choice to attend. I am never afraid to be myself and to speak my mind when I am at DA, which I believe, is one of the most crucial characteristics a high school should have.
Overall, I have always been grateful to God for guiding me towards DA, allowing me to flourish and reach my full potential. All money donated will allow DA to continue its mission of turning smart girls into intelligent women.
