"The greatest thing I learned at McAuley is to think outside the box and to look at things differently, and not to be afraid. McAuley was such a comfortable place. I've noticed in college that many girls are afraid to raise their hand, but my experience taught me the opposite. I was taught to be thoughtful about my response and how to engage in discussion and debate, and that has served me well in college."
