What will you miss most about Marymount?

1) Amazing Teachers

2) Gorgeous Campus

3) Delicious Food

4) My answer to the second question…

What is your funniest/favourite memory from Marymount?

Playing the grand piano in the Main House in the evenings. It was the time when I revitalised myself, letting go of the stress and worries of the day. It was like a daily treat to myself. The harder the day, the sweeter the treat.

What is your favourite Marymount tradition?

Having a class on the lawn when the weather is sunny!

Where is your favourite place on campus?

The lawn, Main House and the chapel.

Which university do you plan to attend/what subject will you be pursuing after leaving Marymount?

I’ll be reading language and culture studies, focusing on Japan and East Asia! I’m hoping to study those both in the U.K. and Japan!

What are you most looking forward to about university?

I’m very excited to finally begin to deepen my knowledge of what I’m passionate about. I can’t wait to satisfy my intellectual curiosity and broaden my horizons! Additionally, I’m very much looking forward to my year abroad experience in a cool country, finding a part-time job and earning money for the first time, and a vibrant/lively urban life!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Hopefully, I will have become a more intelligent and wiser person who can inspire others. I will be working hard to hone my language skills and want to have become a confident speaker and a writer.

What advice do you have for younger students as they move forward in their Marymount experience?

Read a lot. It would be nice if you could develop an interest in learning.

Who has been an influential figure in your life at Marymount?

I could never choose one. But I do want to appreciate some charming teachers who have been the light of my life at this all-girls school (half in jest, half in earnest haha).

Anything else you’d like to add?

Marymount, along with the IB, has taught me an interest in learning. I hope whoever is reading this can gain valuable things from your Marymount experience like me.
