“I came to Maine Coast Semester at Chewonki because it was something completely new – a new environment, new friends, new classes, new teachers; the list goes on and on. I’ve lived in New York City my whole life and wanted to spend time outdoors, embracing nature and all that it has to offer.
Ever since I was 5 years old, I’ve attended the same school, with the same 40 girls, for the most part. When the time to think about applying to Maine Coast Semester finally became a reality, I knew that it was an experience I was really interested in learning more about. I came to Maine Coast Semester for a change and not only did my friends and environment change, but I changed, and I’m forever grateful.”
