IN WHAT GRADE DID YOU JOIN PACE?
WHAT ACTIVITIES ARE YOU INVOLVED IN AT PACE?
Pace Academy student body president, co-editor-in-chief of The Knightly News, member of Pace Academy Student Support (PASS), Pace Academy Board of Diversity (PABD), Student Ambassador and volunteer at the Agape Youth and Family Center.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE PACE?
I chose Pace because of the family feeling you get when you are on campus. The teachers and students welcomed me immediately, and although I was new, they made me feel like I had a new place to call home.
HOW HAVE YOU GROWN DURING YOUR TIME AT PACE?
Coming to Pace has given me more confidence in myself because it has taught me to be my own self-advocate. I now have the courage to speak out and lead because Pace has helped prepare me for whatever challenges or obstacles I face.
WHO HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE TEACHER?
My favorite teacher has been my biology teacher, Mr. Ewing. As a Pace graduate, he understands and connects with students on a personal level. I feel like I could talk to Mr. Ewing about any matters— whether it be about biology or my personal obstacles. He is caring, gives positive advice and has an upbeat demeanor.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT PACE?
My favorite part about Pace is the student-teacher relationships. Unlike other schools, Pace is relatively small, so we get to know our teachers on a personal level and feel comfortable talking to them about academic and non-academic topics alike.
WHAT SHOULD PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS KNOW ABOUT PACE?
Pace is very diverse in that it allows for open discussions on matters of politics, race, religion, etc. Everyone’s voice is heard and taken into consideration, which makes it unique. We contest topics on a daily basis, but everyone is comfortable sharing their own opinions.
