My youngest sister, J, got into Holy Names!

For those of you not in the know, this was the all girls Catholic high school that I went to for two and a half years. I really liked it there, and left for reasons that only a teenager (in their infinate wisdom of not really knowing what they're talking about) can come up with. I wouldn't have changed the last year and a half of high school for the world, but I think that my life would have lead in a much different direction if I'd stayed at HNA. Not necessarily better, but definitely different.

Holy Names gave me a much-needed boost of self-confidence, friends that liked me for me and that I didn't have to pretend with for the first time since my family had moved to Washington state. It was a fantastic school filled with wonderful teachers that loved what they did and really cared about how you were doing and where you were going.

I'm so happy, and really really really proud that she's going there. Good for you J!
