Seniors Share: My Simmons Moment


 STUDENT LEADERSHIP

"Giving my speech at the scholarship brunch was my Simmons moment. I was so happy to have the opportunity to speak directly to my donor about how my scholarship has opened so many doors for me. Had I not gone to Simmons, I don’t think I would have gained the confidence to be a student leader who can bring about change to the community."

Sinai Sampson-Hill '17


BEING INVOLVED

"My Simmons moment is every day that I get to be involved with a unique community that never stops opening doors for its students — and works every day at bettering itself."

McKenzie Sheridan '17


SENIOR YEAR

"Senior year is my Simmons moment. I’m a full-time student and have multiple jobs and internships that cause me to run around all day, but I'm unbelievably happy and love what I do."

- Laura Campbell '17


BECOMING A LEADER

"I came to Simmons as a shy first year. I found my voice on Alternative Spring Break and realized my leadership potential — these experiences have made me who I am today.

My Simmons moment was watching others have that same experience. Being a part of someone else's leadership journey and personal growth, especially someone you really care about, is transformative."

- Amanda Leone '17


ALL MY MOMENTS

"I can’t really think of just one moment at Simmons that shows why I love going here. All my moments at Simmons have been amazing."

- Natasha Friedman '17
