      What languages can you speak?

      I can speak English, Spanish and French.


      What extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus?

      I am a writer for The Phillipian and a member of the Andover Business Club


      What has been your experience as an international student like? (If applicable)

      For me, it has not been hard at all to adapt to the school given the fact that I had previously visited the United States on many occasions. At Andover I have integrated myself among the American student body and continue to try and meet as many people as possible.


      What are your favorite thing(s) about Andover?

      What I like the most about Andover are the people. There are some truly extraordinary and talented people at this school, which motivate me to do my best every day at this school. This school also challenges me to really reach my true potential; this was very different at my old school.


      How does Andover compare to your home?

      Andover is completely different to my home, one the whole, I believe Europe itself is quite different than the United States. Having said so, Andover has such a diverse community, that adapting is not particularly necessary given the fact that everyone at this school is quite different and everybody is respected for who they are.
