Claire Alfano '19 | Newport Beach, Calif.

I’ll miss spending time with the water polo, swimming, and crew teams. I can't imagine my life without the people I have met through these teams and am grateful I as able to be a part of them.

Hill Activities: Prefect, Girls’ Water Polo Captain, Operation Smile Co-President                                 

Unforgettable Hill moment: Winning Eastern Championships for water polo my third and fifth form years.     

Favorite Hill tradition: Hill vs. L'ville Weekend

Favorite Dining Hall Meal: Stuffed shells

My Hill experience taught me . . .  how to be independent. Living away from home at a young age was not easy at first; however, Hill helped me and forced me to get out of my comfort zone and adapt to be independent.

I am grateful for Hill because… I have moved 15 times in my life, and throughout the past four years The Hill became my home.

What I’ll miss the most . . . spending time with the water polo, swimming, and crew teams. I can't imagine my life without the people I have met through these teams and am grateful I was able to be a part of them. 

Future plans . . . Attend the University of Arizona and major in animal science and eventually become a veterinarian.
