How Did you Decide to Attend Grier?

I decided to attend Grier because of the dance and academic programs.

Why do you prefer the all-girls school environment?

I prefer an all-girls environment because we all can be ourselves and encourage each other.

Are you a member or officer of any clubs/organizations?

Excursion club, baking club, pottery club, Vice President of the astronomy club, and I am a Grier School ambassador.

Do you participate in any Signature Programs or activities? Which and why do you enjoy them?

I participate in dance. I am in the intermediate advanced company. I enjoy them because, like school, we encourage each other and learn and grow together.

What has been your favorite memory or story from your time at Grier?

My favorite memory is when we have Gala and Motion dance conventions. I really enjoy having these conventions because we get to take classes from different teachers and we get to meet dancers from different studios.

What are you most excited about for this year?

I am most excited to be with all my friends again.

What is your favorite tradition at Grier and why?

My favorite tradition is parents weekend because all our parents come and meet our teachers and see us dance.

What advice or message would you share with future Grier Girls?

Be in as many clubs as you can be! You'll enjoy it!

Just for fun - what is your favorite class, quote, book, recipe, movie, tv show, or podcast?

My favorite tv show on Netflix is the Queen's Gambit.

Thank you, Alexis, for sharing!
