Mei, Class of 2023
What is something you do well?
I can pick up the basics of languages pretty quickly, last month I started Russian and I’ve already learned basic grammar and phrases.
What is something you have learned in the past week?
I have learned two different forms of the Russian alphabet and their songs. I’ve also learned that ink drawing is very smudgy. I’m doing the “Inktober Art Challenge” this month.
What is a misconception people have about you?
People always think that I’m older than I actually am.
What is the biggest dream you have for yourself that you do not often say aloud?
I would really like to become a graphic designer and an environmental engineer.
Who has had a positive influence on your life so far and why?
My sister! She is always very expressive and that has helped me with who I am and how I present myself especially with confidence.
What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
I think over the past few years I have become a lot more expressive, I don’t worry so much anymore. A while ago I would’ve said I would like to dress more expressively but I’ve definitely gotten better at that.
What do you like about New Harmony?
I think that I really like the idea of going out every single week to do something hands-on when we’re already doing hands-on stuff in the classroom.
