When I first visited the Mesa for my initial tour and interview I was unsure about whether Cate was the place for me or not. Was I ready to leave home? Were people going to be nice? Would the classes be too hard? However, the second my mom closed the doors to her car and we began the drive down heartbreak hill I knew I would belong. I met so many amazing individuals, yet they were all so different. I knew that if so many great people went to school together, I wanted in! When the opportunity came to be able to share the Cate I love with others I instantly wanted to become a tour guide. I wish that everyone could have the Cate moments I have had. Whether it’s walking to a teacher's house for extra help, blasting music in a van on the way to a softball game, or eating pizza during a Gossip Girl marathon, they are all part of the unforgettable memories I will have from my years here. I quickly realized that at Cate you realize who you really are. I had always considered myself a humanities gal, but with the help of Mr. Bonning and Ms. Wyatt physics and math soon became my favorite subjects. When I go home to Los Angeles, you can find me cooking, hanging with my cat, and shopping!
