Senior Spotlight: Indira Delacorte
1. How long have you been at WDS?
I came to WDS at the beginning of my junior year and absolutely loved it. It was so different from the school I was at before, and I felt so happy and at home. It was a big transition, but it was so fun and new. I would have to say it was my favorite year of high school!
2. What did you learn at WDS that you feel prepared you for this next step?
WDS has taught me to be self-motivated, to advocate for myself, and to pursue the things I love. It has allowed me to explore my passions such as music, environmental protection, and working with children. I’m so very thankful for all the fun times and amazing people I’ve met through Woodstock Day School.
3. Why did you choose your particular school/gap year/job?
Things are very up in the air right now so I can’t say for sure what next year will look like. As of now, I’m planning to attend Earlham College, a small liberal arts college in Richmond, Indiana, focused on values such as peace and global studies, social justice, and environmental sustainability.
4. Please share a particularly fond memory of your time at WDS.
I have so many it’s hard to choose! This year’s upper school play was super fun. I got to do a Texas accent and wear a fake pregnant belly for my part so it was quite the experience to say the least!
5. Any advice for the Class of 2021?
Senior year is going to be tough and super stressful at times, but you’ve got this! It’s going to be kind of intense at times and it was definitely the year I had the most going on, but if you push through and try your best you’ll be fine. Know that your hard work will pay off, even if it doesn’t seem like it will in the moment, it will eventually!
