Boarding at Canterbury has honestly changed me in the best way. I learned how to stand on my own two feet pretty quickly, and I've made amazing friends from all over the world. The support here is next level—teachers, coaches, dorm parents, and even other students have my back. I never feel like I am going through any of this alone; instead, it's like everyone around me is cheering me on to be the best version of myself.
