During my time at Post Oak, I learned how to manage a busy schedule while also maintaining social connections. Through the implementation of the IB program and internship opportunities, I was well equipped for the collegiate experience. In managing extracurriculars and a substantial workload while in high school, my time management skills were well established for the collegiate journey.DESTINY JONES '19, currently attending brown university
