Humans of Northwood: Kira Cook ’23


I miss my family and friends. I miss my sister the most. I made the move away from home, Long Island, last September to attend Northwood with two main things on my mind: education and hockey. At my old school, class sizes were very big, and my connection with teachers was minimal. I only saw them for a brief amount of time throughout the day. At Northwood, I can easily make connections with my teachers. Teachers have definitely helped with my experience here. They care not only about my grades but about me as a person. Since class sizes are small and I live with most of the people in the school community, I can get closer to everyone. I love it.

But as much as I love the Northwood community, there are some things about this place that I don’t enjoy as much: the weather in wintertime and the food.

My long-term goal is to become a doctor. But for now, I want to make the most of my time here with my friends that I will never forget. I’ll continue to make memories with them throughout my time at Northwood.
