It is my delight to write you this email from my new school, Ross College, in East Hampton New York!!!!! I arrived last week Tuesday and have had an amazing experience ever since; both inside and outside the classroom. These experiences have made me extra proud to call myself an SSP Alum.


Since my arrival here I have been endlessly praised on my academic ability as well my commitment outside of the classroom. However I do believe that SSP should be getting the praise and not me. You and Kingsmead College have really prepared me for the outside world and have definitely moulded me into a woman of stature, a real force to be reckoned with.


Please pass on my gratitude to the staff at SSP. Everyone here thinks I’m smart but that wouldn’t be possible without the endless workshops and exceptional teachers I had during my time with SSP and Kingsmead. Every single teacher and workshop that I had made the learning experience enjoyable and always went the extra mile to ensure that I came out a better version of myself.


We SSP students really are a kind of our own, on a completely different level intellectually as well as socially. If I wasn’t an SSP student I have no idea where I would be now. So as I continue to conquer the world one tiny step at a time, my roots remain deep in SSP as I am an SSP scholar and will forever be an SSP scholar.
