戴口罩的快乐学生

亲爱的未来的Oldfields家庭:
 
新年是迎接新挑战和新机遇的时刻. 凯发体育官方网站可能会决定今年攀登珠穆朗玛峰, 学习一门新语言, 或者学习如何烹制完美的面包. 凯发体育官方网站的个人目标只是个人的.
 
At a time when so many outside influences attempt to define who a girl should be, Oldfields provides a place free from that pressure—where girls can focus on who they are and what passions they wish to pursue. Research tells us that young women in single-gender schools have stronger self-esteem, 更大的自信, 更广泛的领导机会, 与更高的期望. 没有什么能更好地描述一个Oldfields的学生了. 在这里,女孩主导一切. From small opportunities like making announcements at Morning Meeting to being elected All-School President, 领导力是钢筋. We believe in the power of teenage girls, by the time they leave us, they believe in themselves.
 
Keep reading to learn more about our student's passions and how they have been able to pursue these interests following graduation!

你为什么决定接受Oldfields董事会的任命?

I didn’t expect to end up on the Board as a result of my advocating anti-racism at Oldfields this summer. As I’ve often said, I trace so much of where I am today to my time at Oldfields. 它改变了我的人生轨迹, but I paid a price for that—I endured horrific acts of racism and microaggressions. And now, I always weigh the two sides of the scale when I think about Oldfields. 我爱凯发体育官方. 然而, the duality of Black and People of Color (POC) students’ experiences at Oldfields did not end with me 20 years ago. 还是发生了. 我加入董事会是为了确保这一切结束.

你希望在这个职位上实现什么目标?

首先,我希望黑人和POC学生在Oldfields有安全感. 黑人和POC年轻女性的旅程是超越困难和沉重的. 在你的一生中,这只会变得更加困难. Oldfields should be the place where you feel the most safe, heard, 和重视. 第二个, these problems (racism and other forms of oppression) are not unique to Oldfields. I want to make sure Oldfields is acting and operating on the right side of history moving forward. 这些老机构一直在做自己的事, 女校友们说:“够了.”

你为什么决定接受这个职位 
奥德凯发体育官方董事会?

My sister is a current Oldfields student—a Black girl on campus—and I want to ensure that Oldfields is an amazing place for her, 对于像她这样的学生, for alumnae that didn’t have this representation at the board level (like myself), 也为像我这样的未来学生. 最后,我喜欢Oldfields. 我有一个伟大的经验,作为一个学生. I want to see the School evolve in ways that will make it even better for future generations.

你希望在这个职位上实现什么目标?

我希望我所做的工作能确保Oldfields是一个安全的地方, 公平的, 包括像我一样的女性. 我想要确保奥德凯发体育官方学院对所有学生都是正确的, 我在这里为所有的学生服务. 然而, I have to ensure that the representation is there specifically for Black girls and Black women like me. 我将努力确保这些学生的声音被听到, 受人尊敬的, 验证, 和重视, 过去对这些学生的任何伤害都会被承认, 验证, 和修理. I want to make it so that students of color look back fondly on their Oldfields experiences without a duality…students should feel as though they've had a positive experience and are devoid of trauma. I want the campus to be a place where tough conversations are had and where everyone is respecting and accepting of everyone else.

“我希望我所做的工作能够确保Oldfields是一个安全的空间, 公平的, 包括像我一样的女性.”

你为什么决定接受Oldfields董事会的任命?

我想更多地参与其中. After attending the gatherings in DC, I wasn’t seeing any diversity or women of color at the events. 我想在Oldfields的空间中有更多的代表. 我在oldfields毕业后的经历让我想加入董事会, I believe giving time is just as valuable as financial philanthropy for an institution. 现在是年轻人和有色人种妇女进入董事会的时候了.

你希望在这个职位上实现什么目标?

这是一个复杂的问题,敬请关注! There are a lot of things I want to accomplish, I hope all will come to fruition.

“我希望在Oldfields的空间中有更多的代表.”

政策分析

你为什么决定接受Oldfields董事会的任命?

I was committed to working with the School to follow through on the expectations and demands of the open letter shared this summer outlining actions that the School needed to take. My appointment to the Board expedited my ability to enact action and change around making Oldfields 公平的 and inclusive for all students. 我也很喜欢Oldfields. I’m the alumna that has been back to campus almost every year since I graduated and continue to give my time to the School. For example, I spoke to the Class of 2018 at the 100 Nights ’til Graduation dinner.

你希望在这个职位上实现什么目标?

除了在Oldfields启用行动和改变, I want to extend and establish a relationship between the Board and the students. 作为一个学生,董事会对我来说似乎很疏远, 如果你所做的决定会影响学生的生活, 你应该和他们建立关系,理解他们的经历. 我想帮助Oldfields迈向未来. 当凯发体育官方网站专注于DEI, 凯发体育官方网站需要把残疾学生带来, 酷儿的学生, 还有经济困难的学生.

“My appointment to the board expedited my ability to enact action and change.”
