I am a junior born and raised in beautiful Santa Barbara, California. I am a three sport varsity athlete in lacrosse, water polo, and soccer. I also enjoy watching and playing football. I have had most of my cousins come to Cate in the past so I have known about it all my life. After coming to my first lacrosse game here on the Mesa, I not only knew I wanted to come here, it was easy to tell there was a sense of family within the students and teachers. After living here for two years and going on to my third I have definitely made friends I will know for the rest of my life. Spending time with them whether it be in the classroom, on the sports field, or just in the dorm we have really made bonds that are unbreakable. From playing soccer on our amazing sports fields to learning about protons and neutrons in our chemistry labs, every day here at Cate is a new adventure.
