Humans of Northwood: Margot Rouquette

20180913_065129 (2)

“I am Margot Rouquette from Toulouse, France. I lived in Canada at a boarding school for the past two years, and when I first thought of coming to a boarding school in the US I was excited because I knew how things at a boarding school works. You get to meet a lot of new people. I choose Northwood because they have a great hockey program and the school is amazing. Sometimes I think about what I miss from my country — my family — but even though they are not physically with me, they are always supporting me. My goals are getting into a high-level college where I can continue playing hockey. I also want to make it to the French National Hockey Team. So far, I am enjoying Lake Placid it’s a really nice place where I love making friends, which has been easy as everyone here it’s very outgoing.”

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.
