Zoe '22

Connecticut
2022 

If there’s ever an opportunity to help the WA community, chances are Zoe will be the first one to volunteer. EarthSave, Student Climate Activists, Student Council, Science Honor Society, Latin Honor Society, Social Studies Honor Society, Tri-M Music Honor Society, National Honor Society, Pep-Band, and the WA Music Department are just some of the ways Zoe was involved at The Academy. She helped run fundraisers, prom, carnivals, eco-friendly school initiatives, and more, which have given her the opportunity to “formulate a multitude of relationships as well as have academic success.”

Upon graduating, Zoe’s goal was to “leave a positive legacy with honesty and motivation,” by approaching every opportunity with curiosity over judgment and to learn as much as possible from each course and each person she crosses paths with. Without any specific plans in mind, she plans to head to college to study something creative and rooted in STEAM, possibly architecture.

As Zoe shares the positive impact of her WA experience, she also leaves a word of advice for the next generation of Academy students. “Do what you want to do, not what other people want you to do. You may actually have more opportunities if you lead with kindness and curiosity. Do things with good intention – the results are spectacular.”

“I have grown more than I could ever anticipate at The Academy. I can honestly say that even though there have been adversities and triumphs, I would not trade my experience for anything.”
