The Record Editor-in-Chief, French Club Head

Over my time at Hotchkiss, I have made invaluable friendships and countless unforgettable memories. Amid the whirlwind of sleep deprivation, bouts of extreme procrastination, and testing the limits of my capabilities, my journey here has finally revealed the transformative powers of Hotchkiss. 

I have come to appreciate the importance of taking meaningful breaks for oneself and venturing outside of one’s comfort zone. While the academic rigor and demanding schedule at Hotchkiss can consume our lives, I have learned firsthand the significance of carving out time for self-care. The mental health days you take once in a while can truly make all the difference. Hotchkiss has also taught me the value of embracing discomfort and the unknown. When we challenge ourselves and step beyond familiar boundaries, we truly grow. It’s amazing how many unique and wonderful people you can meet everyday.

Carrie Cao is a former editor-in-chief of The Record.
