Outside of school, Caroline plays the clarinet and was a member of the Greater Bridgeport Youth Orchestra. She also enjoys reading, bike rides, yoga, traveling, listening to music (especially classic rock), drawing, baking. Caroline has a great passion for language and culture. Her father, Alexander, is German, and her mother, Dianne, Chinese, so she has grown up with an appreciation of different cultures. Having learned German as a second language, she considers it an important part of her life. In 2012, she obtained a German language diplomam giving her the opportunity to attend a German university.

Reflecting on her experience at Sacred Heart Caroline offers, “Sacred Heart Academy was a place where I could be myself, and fearlessly learn. I’ve never cared for awards and recognition, and it was refreshing to meet others who strove for more than improving their own status. I am happy to say that the greatest think I take away is not book knowledge, but the experience of living fully as a woman empowered with a strong mind and a caring soul for others.”
