Humans of Northwood: Jeremy Lok To Tsang ‘23

I am a third-year student here at Northwood School, and I am from Hong Kong. I came to Northwood as a 10th grader to pursue my dream of playing college soccer. I had heard about Northwood from a few friends who had already joined from Hong Kong. After hearing about Northwood, I started researching more about the school, and my interest grew. The Northwood partnership with Black Rock was a big attraction for me when I considered coming to Northwood. Year-round soccer was something I was looking for, and Northwood could offer that, along with a very high level of academics. It was an easy choice to attend Northwood, and I could not be happier that I ended up here.

In the future, I would like to play professional soccer. After I graduate, I will attend the University of Vermont to play Division 1 soccer and study. I am very excited to join such a great program that has only improved yearly. It is an excellent school in a great state, which I know I will enjoy. I aim to become a professional soccer player, and I hope that playing at the University of Vermont can help me achieve that goal.

I spend a lot of my time training on the turf or in the gym, but I do a lot more than just that. I enjoy going to town and spending time with my friends; I also enjoy going to church and watching the Sidemen on YouTube. When I am back home, I enjoy spending time with my family, training with my old club, and seeing all my friends from back home.

My favorite thing about being at Northwood is the opportunity it has given me to live in a different country. I always wanted to know how attending school in the United States felt, and Northwood has shown me what that is like. I also love that being here allows me to travel to many different states and see the other areas around the United States. I am so thankful that I could spend the last three years of my life here, and I could not be happier with the outcome.
