Humans of Northwood: Sierra Butler ‘21 

I am from Burlington, VT. I played for Rice Prep for three years before deciding to finish out my high school career at Northwood. I was drawn to Northwood because of the elite hockey program with great coaches as well as the rigorous academics. When I arrived in the fall, I was welcomed by my teammates and students here as well as the faculty members. Coming to a new school for my senior year was a big change for me, but the culture here made me feel at home right away. Surrounded supportive friends, coaches, and teachers, I have felt myself grow in confidence. I have found the courage to step out of my comfort zone and use my voice to engage with others. I have met some amazing people here from all over the world and have made friendships and memories that I know will last a lifetime. My experience at Northwood has taught me many valuable lessons that will stick with me forever. I am excited to attend Northeastern University next year where I will be furthering my education and finding my career path!
