For me the ‘Marymount Magic’ has to be the hospitality of the community. Even though I’ve only been here for less than a year, I have already seen myself grow and change being in this community, as the hospitality of the people taught me how to be more confident and push my limits, so this is definitely the ‘magic’ of Marymount that I have experienced.

The Marymount Magic that people describe is the overwhelming sense of kindness and warmth in the community between the students and teachers that is just unlike any other school that I have been to or witnessed, because there is just no sense of malice or cruelty anywhere. That is the Marymount Magic everybody speaks of, because you are free to be yourself without judgement.

I would say that I am a very positive person, and I like talk to people! I like my Marymount community and love getting to know people from all grades, which I have been able to do especially through the musicals. As your Student Council President, I will be someone who represents everyone, knows everyone and everyone knows me back, and people can feel comfortable coming to me with any issues or initiatives that I can present to the higher body of the school!
