Humans of Northwood: Shashwath Sunkum ‘22

I spontaneously decided to come to Northwood and change the trajectory of my future, but little did I know that I would find a place half-way across the world I can call home. The experience has been a surreal one, with delightful surprises each day. The remarkably amicable community has been so welcoming, making my transitions from life in India seamless. Nestled in the Adirondacks, the sky is both metaphorically and literally the limit. The opportunities available to explore one’s varied interests are seemingly infinite. I have been intellectually challenged by esoteric men, the likes of Mr. Reed, Mr. McCauley, Mr. LeBlanc & Mr. Emery. Unexpectedly, I found a passion for recreational skiing. Ms. Fagan expertly taught us beginners this skill, making us all fall in love with it. Although my short time at Northwood, is approaching its completion, I can proudly say that Northwood School & the town of Lake Placid, are an integral part of my identity.
