Friday Speaker: Caroline Smith '22

When the pandemic turned junior city-slicker Caroline Smith’s life upside down last year, she found herself stuck in suburbia, unsure of her next move. Happily, she found a way to make things “click.” She reflected, “I’m no oak tree flowering out of Connecticut soil, but something has started tethering me here. And that’s a hard thing to get when you know that everything is transient, especially when things have been transient for so long. But GFA embraced me. GFA embraced me when I was at my most sensitive, my most fragile, my least-assured. … I did not come here looking for a love like this, but I found it.”
