What has been the most rewarding part of being an RA? The relationships you get to make with the girls. It’s always hard to say goodbye at the end of the year. It’s so rewarding to watch these girls grow from year to year.
Dorm essential: Lots of blankets! It’s sometimes cold in the lounge so having extra cozy blankets is key! 
What is your favorite memory from your time as a boarding student at ANC? The best times were when we were all just hanging out in each other’s rooms. The bonds that I made in the dorm are friendships I’ll have forever.
