"Throughout my four years at Oratory, an especially memorable project I completed was my survey project in Sociology class. I conducted a questionnaire on my classmates investigating how operant conditioning (the learning process through which the strength of a behavior is modified by reward or punishment) in the form of digital loot boxes affected the psychology of students increasing their desire to spend money. The freedom to choose my topic and the real world application made it very informative and exciting."
"My favorite moment so far this year was going to the Varsity basketball games and being part of the Rowdies because as a Middle School student, it made me feel a part of the school even more."
"One of the best things about working on so many activities at OP is that it gives me the opportunity to interact with the students outside of the classroom. Between yearbook, Omega, and Student Council, I get to see our students work on activities that they enjoy. It's an awesome thing to have a job where your goal is to plan fun events... and who doesn't love a good doppelganger?"
