  • What grade are you currently in and how long have you been a student at Bullis?
  • I am currently a Senior, and I entered Bullis in 4th grade so this is my 9th year at Bullis.

  • What classes have you most enjoyed at Bullis and why?
  • I've enjoyed all the business courses at Bullis the most. Specifically, Business Model Design, Entrepreneurial Finance, and Personal Finance with Ms. Antokas. These classes have taught me the most about life skills and are things I'll need to know for life. For example, as basic as it is to learn how to write a check, it was astonishing to see how few kids were actually able to fill one out. These life skills are things you need in real life, and it was great to learn those skills at such a young age. I also enjoyed AP Microeconomics and AP Macroeconomics with Dr. Narcesinfield. She is one of my favorite teachers at Bullis. She treats every student kindly, is very energetic, and truly cares about the well-being of students both inside and outside of school. I also really loved having Mr. Marusak in Middle School. Unfortunately, he just retired but he was the teacher that truly taught me how to write and best prepared me for high school.

  • What activities do you participate in at Bullis?
  • Yearbook (4-year staff member, 3-year Editor-In-Chief), Bullis Student Tutors (Head of the Lower School Director, Co-Director of the entire program for a portion of my Junior Year, 3-year Lower School tutor/teacher’s assistant), Business Gives Back Club Founder and Club President, Bullis Ambassadors (Junior Ambassadors as well), Girls Who Start Bullis Chapter Founder and President, Animal Rescue Club Member, Students Against Sexual Assault Club Member, Varsity Girls Tennis Manager, Bullis 5K Volunteer, KEEN Prom volunteer/buddy, and Organized a COVID-19 donation drive with my club Business Gives Back in partnership with So What Else.

  • What do you like most about the Bullis community?
  • I appreciate how much choice there is to get involved, regardless of your interests.  There is something for everyone and you can find leadership roles by getting involved early on.  While it's a competitive environment, I like how people encourage each other to excel and realize that there is room for lots of people to succeed.

  • What are you most passionate about and why?
  • I am most passionate about business and the amazing opportunities Bullis has offered me in this field. The course selection along with clubs and opportunities I've been able to participate in to enhance my classwork has given me valuable connections and experiences that I can take with me to college.

  • What global challenge would you like to see tackled and how do you see yourself contributing to the positive change that you desire?
  • The global challenge I'd like to tackle is financial literacy for underprivileged communities.  My goal is to make sure all families can thrive and secure a future for themselves and their children and plan their way out of poverty.  I see myself eventually working with the public and private sectors to ensure financial literacy programs in schools and in the workplace. In addition, I will lobby for better fair lending and banking regulations for the poor.  Things like opening a basic checking account should be a human right for everyone.

  • Why Bullis?
  • The reason families should consider Bullis is because kids that come here want to do well, and as a result,  they rise to the occasion.  The environment fosters collaboration, exploration, independence, and a true desire to be your best while not burning out and still enjoying school. Bullis produces well-rounded, highly able students who lead confidently, and never want to stop learning.
