Humans of Northwood: Francisco Eduardo Castillo ‘19

FranPeople call me “Fran.” I am 19 years old from Dominican Republic. I have an older sister, but she’s lucky enough to be born here in the US, while I was born on a small island in the Caribbean, which I love. I am a soccer player here at Northwood, but I also like learning all the good things that Northwood offers. I came to Northwood because I wanted to follow my dream: playing soccer and studying at the same time and at a high level. My favorite part of Northwood is how everybody is welcoming and they all teach you new stuff. My plans after Northwood are hopefully attending a good college where I can play soccer and study until I decide which is better for me. Something that I am never going to forget about Northwood is probably when in the beginning of the school year, when the cold was starting, Shanks [senior Matthew Shanklin] offered me a warm jacket or when I go to Will’s room at night just to talk. I will never forget this because it made me feel part of the Northwood family right since the beginning.”
