The word I have selected is OPPORTUNITY as Merici has provided me with so many opportunities both when I was at school, and after graduating. Opportunities in terms of education that have allowed me to find my passion and pursue this pathway in teaching, whilst aspiring to be like the many wonderful teachers I had at Merici. Opportunities to truely figure out who I am, to gain confidence, to be myself, express myself and to learn to love myself. Opportunities to meet some amazing and inspirational people, create lifelong friends and endless opportunities to have fun, learn to love learning and feel part of a rich and welcoming community. Merici allowed me the opportunity to try new things, learn new sports and skills and develop lifelong skills for life after school. Merici provided me with the opportunity to become the person I am today, and to me, that sums up my whole experience at Merici College and I am truely thankful.
