What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
The book that I have enjoyed the most at Geneva is Silence. I liked it because it showed how tough it was to be a Christian in Japan during those times. It was really interesting to read and just to see how all the different characters reacted to all the tough situations.
What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?
Most of my funniest moments at Geneva have happened on a bus ride back from a sports game. I don’t know what it is about those bus rides, but getting to ride back with all your friends after winning a game is an awesome time. I’ve made really good memories and friendships through a simple bus ride.
What will you miss most when you leave Geneva?
I will miss the tight nit community the most, being able to call everyone by their name and do all the fun stuff that you just can’t find anywhere else.
Who has influenced you most while at Geneva? How?
Mr. Naiser has influenced me the most at Geneva. During every class we would learn not only about science but about God. He made a huge impact on me and taught me how to live a Christian life while also having loads of fun. Whether it was taking us to play ultimate frisbee after a test or giving Bible lessons in the middle of class, Mr. Naiser made a huge impact on us all.
What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
Being a Geneva student to me means being a leader and not a follower. My hope is that someone is able to look at a Geneva student and say that he or she is different. Not falling prey to the world’s definition of success but rather trying to be successful in the eyes of God.
How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartener to persevere in school?
I would encourage them to have the end goal in site in everything they do. God makes us do everything for a reason and places us in a specific spot at a specific time for a reason. It is not a mistake that He has placed you at Geneva. Trust Him in all you do and He will do the rest.
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope that all the fun and different things Geneva does never change. Whether it be quidditch or field day or any of all the different things we do, I think it brings us all together and builds a community that isn’t like any other.
