Humans of Northwood: Calem Tommy ‘22 

“I came to Northwood from Cape Town; South Africa to pursue my career as a student athlete. I know Northwood can help me develop me and I see it as the perfect balance between sports and academics. Something I really like about Northwood is the diversity throughout the school. It makes for a very interesting dynamic and opens me up to new cultures and ideas.  

“I have played soccer from a young age, but I began to take it seriously when I was 9 years old when I took part in my first match. 

“One aspect of Northwood that I consider to be negative is how far from home I am. When I’m not on the pitch, I enjoy listening to music and going to the beach with my friends. I plan to continue being a student-athlete at a top college with a successful soccer program where I hope to study business management or sports science.”
