Humans of Northwood: Sara Ellsworth ‘21

You know what? I used to go to two schools at the same time. For the first half of the day, I would go to my main high school, and for the second half of the day, I would travel to a school in Saranac Lake. Every day after lunch, a few other Lake Placid kids and I took a bus to a school that offered co-curricular activities like cosmetology, cooking, and automotive. We also took some classes there like English, Health, and Global Studies.

I chose to come to Northwood mainly because my dad works there. But I also wanted to pursue acting and skiing and join the art program. What I love most about Northwood is that no matter who you are, what sport you do, or who your friends are, everyone still treats each other like family.

My favorite hobbies are drawing, painting, writing, acting, skateboarding, playing video games, the piano and bass, and baseball. I also like to study microbiology in my own time. My dream is to become an actor in Hollywood. I wish to lend my voice to cartoons and video games or straight up be in a movie or a show. I plan to be a marshaller or a ticket agent at an airport as a side job in college.

My plan for next year is to work harder on school and try to get accepted into my top colleges. I want to savor every moment I have left at Northwood, because this school saved my life. I plan to make an impact – an impression – for my senior year that will have me remembered.
