What are your favorite thing(s) about Andover?
My favorite thing about Andover are all the students. Not only is everyone very nice, everyone is very interesting. Making friends has been such an enjoyable activity. Everyone you meet is always so sweet and so fun to talk to. The friends that I have made so far at Andover are friends that will be my friends later in my life. You can make real bonds and connections with the people here.
How does Andover compare to your home?
I live in Detroit which is a big city. Andover has a town, but you can walk to must places in it. Back home you have to drive everywhere. Both places are places that I feel at home and comfortable in. I love both very much and I am so glad that I can call them my homes.
Briefly talk about an interesting experience you had while visiting another part of the world (if applicable).
My father is from Spain so I have spent much time visiting family there. During the summer time after my cousins and I ate dinner we would walk into town and go to the heladería, this little ice-cream shop in town. I loved doing this, but I always found it so strange because my youngest cousins would come with us and it was around 9:30 pm. My little 4-year-old cousins would even join us. Back home in Michigan, I was expected to be in bed at 9:30, but here in Spain I never had to go to bed early. I was always allowed to do what the other cousins did. I will always remember these summer trips to the heladería and cherish the memories forever.
