In kindergarten, music and books fascinated Caitlin. She sang loudly along to the car radio, read voraciously, and enjoyed writing stories about her favorite television characters.
As soon as she was old enough, she played violin with SJA’s band and sang in the SJA choir. In middle school, she and her friends began to write poetry and novels together. With the guidance of her teachers and the help of her friends, Caitlin’s interests in creative writing and music flourished.
Now attending the Academy of the Holy Angels, Caitlin has further pursued her passions. She serves her faith community as a church lector and a CCD Catechist, and spends her summers volunteering as a counselor at a camp for special needs individuals. She received AHA’s Kindness Award and Sister Nonna Dunphy Scholarship for her good character, academic achievement, leadership, and service.
In school, she participates in Writers’ Society and Concert Choir, and is co-founder of Psychology Club. She was inducted into the National Honor Society, as well as the Math, Spanish, and Science Honor Societies. As a member of Writers’ Society, she sold customized haikus to raise money for the impoverished in Haiti. She regularly submits to writing competitions, and has recently been honored by the NJ Governor’s Awards for her short story Calamity of Freedom. In the future, she hopes to become a psychologist and a published author.
