Andrea A. '19 wanted to share her feelings about the lasting impact and extraordinary memories Latin in Rwanda gave her during the Summer of 2017. She credits this experience to Ms. Dorer, who she says is the most gracious and compassionate person she knows, and Mr. Nichols and the rest of their team for their support. Andrea created this video that was shown to her peers at an upper school assembly in February.
