Student Spotlight – Grace Williams ’17

Loves About Brebeuf

I think one of the things that I love the most about Brebeuf are the senior privileges. They grant me the ability to go to Starbucks to study every morning, which is a luxury I wouldn’t get many other places. I also really love the teachers at Brebeuf. There are so many amazing teachers that become your friends, which is really cool to see. 

Favorite Class

I’m a huge nerd and I have way too many classes that I’ve loved at Brebeuf, but if I had to pick just one, it would have to be either Honors Biotechnology with Ms. Annee or AP Physics with Mr. Rott. I’ve learned so much in both of these classes and have had so much fun while doing so.

Future Plans

I am unsure of where I want to attend college and have applied to many schools, but I hope to potentially go to Georgetown University or Cornell University to study Neuroscience, and either become a doctor or veterinarian.

Random Fact

I had a cake decorating business when I was younger called GracieCakes.

What has been your favorite Brebeuf experience or most memorable moment so far?

I think that my favorite Brebeuf experience has either been leading Kairos or the EKS games. Kairos was such an amazing and fulfilling experience that every Brebeuf student should take advantage of while they are here. And, leading it gave me a whole new perspective on the people in my life that I hadn’t experienced before. Also, I love the EKS games because it is such a fun day and it is so cool to see Brebeuf athletes coming together for an amazing cause. 

Are you going to be watching the Super Bowl?  Any thoughts on the game?

My family watches the Super Bowl together every year because it always falls on my dad’s birthday weekend. However, I usually enjoy the commercials and halftime more than the game. We’ll be getting some Buffalo Wild Wings and hanging out as a family!
