My name is Luna. I'm from Michigan, and I am a sophomore this year. I enjoy reading books, playing the clarinet, and watching tv. I am currently involved in the Model UN club, Chinese club, and played tennis and was on the crew team last year. I am also a mentor for the International Student Organization.
I remember going to pit band rehearsal after school that day, and meeting up with one of my day student friends beforehand. She was telling me about her old friends from her old school whom she saw recently, which made me even sadder because I was already homesick. But as the rehearsal started, I started feeling like I truly belonged at Peddie. I was doing something that I love, playing instruments, with people who shared the same passion. Everyone was serious the quality of our music, but at the same time, we also had a ton of fun. Mr. Michaels, our band director, was cracking jokes, other members would share snacks during breaks, and just genuinely have a great time. It never felt like a burden to go to rehearsals, instead, it would sometimes be the best part of my day. Although now, I still do get homesick sometimes, I always have my friends or great teachers such as Mr. Michaels to talk to. Soon, you will feel like Peddie is a home away from home.
