As a student Westover empowered me to be unafraid to try new things, be resilient in the face of adversity and failure, and to strive for constant learning. As an alumna, Westover has enriched my life through the life-long relationships I've gained with amazing women and faculty.

My time at Westover included much more than a great education. I found life-long friendships, and who I was always meant to be.
