Amelia Woodhouse
College was a big highlight in my life, I loved every single bit of it. You’re still young and you should enjoy that part of your life, but you also need an idea of who you want to become. I’m so proud of getting myself to where I am today. Be yourself, Hopwood Hall allows people to be individuals, and don’t be afraid to ask for help because someone always will.
