Boarder – Bangkok, Thailand

What are you involved in at CA?

Science club, Linguistics Club, Green Club

What is the best class you’ve taken at CA and why?

For me it’s Figure Drawing, because I get to explore observational drawing and use new art media art. It is also very cool that we get to draw real-life models instead of wood figures, mannequins, or pictures.

What is on your CA bucket list?

To play first doubles in the tennis season and go to some classes with my sister (hopefully next year).

What is your favorite boarding memory or tradition?

The Halloween candy hunt, because it allows boarders to take a break from studying and have fun with their housemates and head of house.

What else is special to you about CA?

CA really feels more like a family than an academic place. It allows students to not only find their passion in academic subjects but also in themselves. The faculty and students here really challenge me to have a better understanding of our connected world and better knowledge of myself.
