The ILC Dinner = A Total Success

The ILC dinner this past Thursday was a total success. I really enjoyed meeting so many people and I would like to thank everyone who worked to make this event so memorable and special for everyone including our parents. I just feel so much more excited of going to Brown now that I got the chance to talk to so many people who have already visited the East Coast. Many of these same people gave me advice concerning how my stay will be and what I will need to bring. The food was just delicious and the speakers at the dinner were great. I would like to congratulate both Megan and Irene for their wonderful speeches, they said so many things that I too feel and agree with. The talking at the dinner was nonstop and it continued onto the Bart as well. My mother and I even got some really pretty flowers to take home, which I find was a really nice gift. I really liked the people that I sat with during the dinner, among them was Antonio Medrano, a school board member who congratulated all of us for our courage to take on this challenge and for representing our district so well. There was just so much to say and so much to hear that the night practically flew by and no one noticed that it was around ten o'clock by the time we actually left Jardinière and began our walk back to the Bart. Now I just anticipate the next meetings one in May where we will be presented to the School Board and the other in June which is our Orientation . We are almost there!!


  1. It was a total success. I am glad that you were part of the festivities. I could see that you were having a great time at your table. We all felt the joy and I truly feel this is a great group that is going to Brown this summer. I can say that it just gets better and better.

    Everyone looked like a million bucks and everyone got along so well. I felt like I was part of one big happy family. For me, this was a great outlet since I just lost my Mom and being there was a little emotional. I am glad that everyone is being supportive of me and my family.

    Richmond High School should be proud that we are making a positive impact and letting people see the real "Richmond".

    Take care.
