亲爱的未来的老凯发体育官方家庭:
 
新的一年是迎接新的挑战和机遇的时刻. 凯发体育官方网站可能会决定今年攀登珠穆朗玛峰, 学一门新语言, 或者学习如何做一条完美的面包. 凯发体育官方网站的个人目标就是这么个人.
 
At a time when so many outside influences attempt to define who a girl should be, Oldfields provides a place free from that pressure—where girls can focus on who they are and what passions they wish to pursue. Research tells us that young women in single-gender schools have stronger self-esteem, 更大的自信, 更广泛的领导机会, 还有更高的抱负. 没有什么能比这更能形容Oldfields的学生了. 在这里,女孩主导一切. From small opportunities like making announcements at Morning Meeting to being elected All-School President, 领导力得到加强. We believe in the power of teenage girls, by the time they leave us, they believe in themselves.
 
Keep reading to learn more about our student's passions and how they have been able to pursue these interests following graduation!

你为什么决定接受奥德凯发体育官方董事会的任命?

I didn’t expect to end up on the Board as a result of my advocating anti-racism at Oldfields this summer. As I’ve often said, I trace so much of where I am today to my time at Oldfields. 它改变了我的人生轨迹, but I paid a price for that—I endured horrific acts of racism and microaggressions. And now, I always weigh the two sides of the scale when I think about Oldfields. 我爱Oldfields. 然而, the duality of Black and People of Color (POC) students’ experiences at Oldfields did not end with me 20 years ago. 这种情况仍在发生. 我加入董事会就是为了终结这一切.

你希望在这个职位上完成什么?

首先,我想让黑人和POC学生在Oldfields感到安全. 黑人和POC年轻女性的旅程不仅仅是艰难和沉重. 随着你的成长,这只会变得越来越困难. Oldfields should be the place where you feel the most safe, heard, 和重视. 第二个, these problems (racism and other forms of oppression) are not unique to Oldfields. I want to make sure Oldfields is acting and operating on the right side of history moving forward. 这些老机构一直在忙自己的事, 女校友们说“适可而止”.”

你为什么决定接受这个任命呢 
奥德凯发体育官方董事会?

My sister is a current Oldfields student—a Black girl on campus—and I want to ensure that Oldfields is an amazing place for her, 对于像她这样的学生, for alumnae that didn’t have this representation at the board level (like myself), 还有像我这样的未来学生. 总之,我喜欢Oldfields. 当学生的时候,我有一段很棒的经历. I want to see the School evolve in ways that will make it even better for future generations.

你希望在这个职位上完成什么?

我希望我所做的工作能够确保Oldfields是一个安全的空间, 公平的, 包括像我这样的女性. 我想确保Oldfields对所有学生都是正确的, 我在这里为所有的学生服务. 然而, I have to ensure that the representation is there specifically for Black girls and Black women like me. 我将努力确保这些学生的声音被听到, 受人尊敬的, 验证, 和重视, 凯发体育官方网站承认过去对这些学生造成的伤害, 验证, 和修理. I want to make it so that students of color look back fondly on their Oldfields experiences without a duality…students should feel as though they've had a positive experience and are devoid of trauma. I want the campus to be a place where tough conversations are had and where everyone is respecting and accepting of everyone else.

你为什么决定接受奥德凯发体育官方董事会的任命?

我想更多地参与其中. After attending the gatherings in DC, I wasn’t seeing any diversity or women of color at the events. 我想在Oldfields的空间里有更多的代表. 我离开oldfields后的经历让我想加入董事会, I believe giving time is just as valuable as financial philanthropy for an institution. 是时候让年轻人和有色人种女性加入董事会了.

你希望在这个职位上完成什么?

这是一个意味深长的问题——敬请期待! There are a lot of things I want to accomplish, I hope all will come to fruition.

政策分析

你为什么决定接受奥德凯发体育官方董事会的任命?

I was committed to working with the School to follow through on the expectations and demands of the open letter shared this summer outlining actions that the School needed to take. My appointment to the Board expedited my ability to enact action and change around making Oldfields 公平的 and inclusive for all students. 我也很喜欢Oldfields. I’m the alumna that has been back to campus almost every year since I graduated and continue to give my time to the School. For example, I spoke to the Class of 2018 at the 100 Nights ’til Graduation dinner.

你希望在这个职位上完成什么?

除了在Oldfields采取行动和改变, I want to extend and establish a relationship between the Board and the students. 对我这个学生来说,董事会似乎很疏远, 如果你做的决定会影响到学生的生活, 你应该和他们建立关系,了解他们的经历. 我想帮助Oldfields走向未来. 当凯发体育官方网站关注DEI的时候, 凯发体育官方网站需要带残疾学生, 酷儿的学生, 还有经济困难的学生.

“My appointment to the board expedited my ability to enact action and change.”
