我必须承认,当我第一次从网赌正规网站网址我最牵挂的地方思考的是关于真棒人及其多样性毕业。信息的财富来源于具有多元化的社会,所有这一切我仍然站立。然而,已经长大成人,我倾向于现在更多的反思橡木,它的使命,以及它如何融入有时似乎是这样一个混乱的社会的理念。橡木的朋友上学,贵格会的原则,受教育者指导,加强年轻人的良知,同情心和成就感的生活。学生体验不同的社区内的具有挑战性的课程,致力培育精神,学者,艺术家和每个人的运动员。作为一个母亲的这些话引起共鸣。什么其他的学校不仅是你的学习,但你的同情和培育你的精神有关?我希望我的孩子成为最好的自己不是有些俗套的模范生。

Looking back on my time at Oakwood that is exactly what they did for me. I came to Oakwood as an eager high school freshmen determined to get into The United States Military Academy, although this was not the ‘Quaker Way’. I spent four years at Oakwood where, instead of them telling me how my dreams were too big, not a right fit or unattainable, they taught me how to follow my passion, to be deliberate in my actions, to dream, to plan and execute, allowing me to become the First African American in New York State to graduate from West Point. Today I find myself working for Rural & Migrant Ministry, Inc. a not for profit organization that is founded on the principals of creating a just New York for all. We act to overcome the prejudices and poverty that degrade and debilitate people within rural New York by building communities that celebrate diversity, achieve true mutuality and fight for dignity and opportunity to all. So in reflecting, Oakwood gave me the safe space to not be afraid to take risks, stand up for myself, and be passionate. Oakwood allowed me the supportive environment to develop into a better me and for that I am forever grateful.
