In September, Moffly Media published their 'Top Teens to Watch' issue in Stamford; Greenwich; New Canaan, Darien, and Rowayton; and Westport, Weston, and Wilton Magazines. Students who live in each town are selected based on their outstanding achievements, intelligence, and passion.
This year, four King students were selected, and the editors at Moffly Media mentioned, "This year's top teens are like no other we've profiled. Sure, they're smart and multi-talented, but they've shown us some major resilience, too. They've lived through a global pandemic, put plans on hold, missed out on some of the most vital months of their high school years, and yet their drive for a better tomorrow is more powerful than ever."
Congratulations to Nicole Roer '22, Tyler Mace '22, Maggie Ravinsky '22, and Giovanna Armetta '22.
Nicole Roer '22 (Greenwich): Knowing what you know now, what would you tell your freshman self? "Learn to value mistakes more than successes because when you make a mistake, you have an opportunity to learn from it more than you would have if you succeeded the first time around."
Tyler Mace '22 (Westport, Weston, and Wilton): Where do you see yourself in ten years? "After getting a doctorate in marine biology, I hope to have figured out ways to help sharks go from being endangered to having normal oceanic levels."
Maggie Ravinsky '22 (New Canaan, Darien, and Rowayton): What's your definition of changing the world? "My definition of changing the world is doing small things in your community. Doing something little for someone can change that person's world."
Giovanna Armetta '22 (Stamford): What do you like about King? "I love that high school has enabled me to try classes and activities that I never would have imagined possible, such as working in a professional lab, academic competition with other schools, or learning about the diversity of thoughts and people around me."
