I still remember the day I received an invitation to apply to SAS. At that moment I decided that's the place where I wanted to go, today I think that is one of the best decisions I have made. SAS has exposed me to a rich academic environment that stems from the melding of college and high school courses. However, the school has gone beyond educational excellence to help me improve as a person. I have learned to take initiative, to go beyond my boundaries. My fellow students are a diverse mix of people who make me question my world views and opinions time and time again. I have made friends that inspire me with their exceptional talents and endeavors. I am humbled and overjoyed to have spent the last two years here and as they come to a close, I look back to when I first stepped onto school grounds, a timid but excited girl that would soon discover the wealth of possibilities at her disposal.
