Humans of Northwood: Castillo Twins Edition

IMG_0132

I’m Angie. I was born in Brooklyn but raised in Manhattan. In my family, Addie and I are the youngest. In the fall I do cross country, I did the play and the musical during the winter and then in the spring I do lacrosse, but I really like to run. I came to Northwood because my brother went to a boarding school and it’s like a tradition in our family now. My mom wanted me to come here. I love the people in Northwood, it wouldn’t be the same without certain people here. Living with your best friends is the best — it’s just like a dream. After Northwood, I want to go to college, obviously, but for singing so I gotta pass the audition first.   I’m Addie. I’m from Manhattan in New York City. I’m 17 years old. I’m in 10th grade. I have quite a few siblings, I have two older brothers, an older sister and a twin. In the fall I ran cross country, then I’m part of the drama program during the winter but I also do vocals and in the spring I play lacrosse. I came to Northwood because it’s one of the smallest boarding school and it’s not too far away from home. I also thought the location was really cool. When I first came to Lake Placid to visit I liked the history of this town, especially the Olympic history. Classes are small compared to the classes in Manhattan, so it is better for me. Northwood has a real sense of community. That’s what I like about it, everyone is so supportive.
