When I first visited NMH, I sat in on a Humanities class and the teacher—who eventually would become my volleyball coach and mentor—treated me just as if I were one of the students. The teachers here are really dedicated and they help us learn how to think more deeply. They don’t want us to just copy what they say but to find our own ideas and our own niche and then go out into the world and make changes.
The fact that everything is here at my fingertips has really helped me grow. I love knowing I can walk from my dorm to volleyball and not have to drive an hour to practice, and the same goes for music and my work with outreach programs. I’ve made so many discoveries here—like Chinese, which I’ve taken for five semesters. I never would have imagined that Chinese would become my passion—but it is!
