Application and Reflection Time

It’s application season! At the beginning of spring term for each school year, students are given the opportunity to apply for various leadership positions across campus, including becoming a part Stevenson student ambassador program or being chosen as a prefect in the dorms. I was extremely attracted by the prefect position, as I remember my freshman year prefects being a big source of help and guidance when I had first arrived at Stevenson. This experience of moving across the world, away from my family, daunted me, and my prefects were there to help me adjust and feel welcome in this new environment. Having lived on campus for two years, I was determined to become a prefect in my sophomore year and recreate the same sense of safety that I felt for others.

A Big Win

It’s game time! We kicked off our season with a game against Notre Dame, who had a newly formed their girls lacrosse team.

As we walked through the gates, a restless thumping formed in my chest. This moment felt like some sort of reward - a time that I had earned for myself to demonstrate the skill that I had accumulated for the past three years.

Avocado Toast Adventures

During the three-day extended weekend, my friends and I set on our journey to explore areas of the Monterey Peninsula where we have not been before. In the past two and a half years spent in this area, I slowly felt that I had begun to run out of options for places to go on the weekends.

Christmas is Around the Corner

It is almost time for the holidays! The campus has been filled with joy and anticipation for the season, with every corner of it adorned with sparkling lights and tall-standing trees. I arrive in Rosen, where there are tables set up with lines of gingerbread houses waiting to be decorated. Outside, there is a line of cookies and hot chocolate.

Thank You, Advisory

There are many good things that Stevenson has brought into my life, one of them being my advisor. Though I initially did not understand the importance of advisory, or why it is even necessary, it is something that I now believe is essential to our Stevenson community.

Finding Kind

We, the Atheneum Leadership Team, was returning from our event at the Carmel Campus, where we screened the documentary Finding Kind and were joined by the seventh and eighth grade girls for the evening. The documentary addressed the issue of girl-against-girl bullying. The two young women behind this campaign, Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson, sharing similar experiences with bullying during their childhoods, found that it was a common issue throughout all communities across the country. Their campaign took off to a start as they travelled the entire country, interviewing many girls about their personal experiences while promoting awareness and reconciliation on the issue. To say the least, it was an eye-opening experience.

About Me

Catherine

Hi! My name is Catherine, and I’m a rising junior. Though I was born in Pleasanton, California, but I like to call my home Shanghai, China. I enjoy contemporary and hiphop dance, painting in watercolor, and eating cuisine from all over the world. After arriving at Stevenson, I was introduced to many different sports and activities, one of which was lacrosse! I played one season so far during freshman year, and ever since, it has been one of my favorite sports. Even though it was difficult to adjust to this unfamiliar sport, I made a promise to challenge myself— and I kept it! This year, I will look forward to doing the things I do, including lacrosse.
