My name is Lanéa Pearson, and I never dreamed that I would be going to boarding school. I grew up in Santa Barbara and Ventura and had a lovely child hood, in which I learned many instruments, how to unicycle, solve a Rubik’s cube, and many other odd things. I am a big fan of trying new things, from a new restaurant, a different route to the store, or simply a new pair of shoes. However I was a little nervous about trying something as different as Cate. Before Cate, I had gone to the same school for nine years, so my school had become a big part of me. I was quite nervous about coming to a school like this. But boy was I wrong. Cate has allowed me to exercise all of my weirdness to its fullness. I am happy go lucky and grateful for everything that comes my way. I am Lanéa, nice to meet you.
