What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
Ishmael is the most influential book I’ve read because it teaches about the difference of mankind and nature and how we treat our surroundings. It made me realize how a different perspective can change the way you respect and treat your environment.

Mrs. Wheeler, because she was always really supportive and helpful throughout high school.
What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
I think being a Geneva student means I was very lucky to be at a school where I am able to get help when I need it. I think it means I’m lucky that I was able to have appreciation for things like literature and writing that I would not have otherwise. I like the fact that I’ve gotten to learn so much about authors like Tolkien and Lewis that I may not have shown much interest in if I weren’t introduced to them early on.
How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartner to persevere?
I would say to pace yourself, become close with your best teachers, and take advantage of the smallness of Geneva because it’s easier to thrive in a close-knit environment.
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope that Geneva never changes it’s quirky, fun ways. Never changes the quidditch games that they have in the spring. Never change Tolkien day. And never change how crazy it gets when it comes to field day!
