What are you involved in at CA?

I am the Co-Head of the Jewish Students Organization, Section Editor for the Opinions Section of the Centipede, Orientation Leader, on varsity basketball, and Head Tour Guide!

Share a moment where you knew you belonged at CA

I would say that practically every memory that I have had with the basketball team has reminded me that I belong at CA. Sports at CA are so much more than sports: they are an even tighter-knit community than the one we already experience as a school. Joking around in the locker rooms before practice or laughing on long bus rides to games always reminds me of how happy I am to be at the school I am at.

How would you describe common trust?

Common trust may be one of the most overused terms at CA, but that is simply because it applies to everything! Common trust encompasses the basics trusting that others won’t take your belongings, that people will have academic honesty, etc. but it also encompasses some ideas that are more complex. I would say that one of the more unappreciated aspects of common trust is that it plays into the way that students and teachers treat each other. The trust we have in each other creates a sense of mutual respect that can be seen in the way that we call teachers by their first names, or by the meaningful conversations students are able to have with teachers outside of class.
