Humans of Northwood: Cory Booth

Cory Booth

 

I’ve lived in Bermuda all my life. I chose Northwood for the elite soccer program. It also appealed to me as a friendly, small community. After this year, I hope to play Division I soccer somewhere and find a career that that I am passionate about intrigues me. I do miss home a lot. I miss my family, of course. And I miss my friends, as I felt very comfortable around them, whereas my friends here, it takes years for that sort of comfort. Also, of course, I miss the consistent good weather. Here sometimes it can…be very cold. Well, I haven’t really experienced that fully, but I know that I will really soon.

According to the Admissions Office, this year Northwood has 72 international students from 23 different countries and 6 different continents, breaking records for the number of international students and countries represented in the school. Close to 40% of Northwood students are from outside the United States. Throughout the first trimester, The Mirror will profile a number of new international students, so that our community can learn who they are, where are they from, and some interesting things about them. See all student profiles here.
