“Humans of the Sacred Heart” – Annika Wise ’25


What are you looking forward to accomplishing this semester as Sophomore Class President?

“This semester, I want to work on making the sophomore class even closer.  Having a small grade compared to other schools is really special.  It is so amazing to be able to look around and feel comfortable talking to anyone, so I want to ensure everyone in the sophomore class feels that way.”

What do you find most challenging about your role as the water polo team captain as a sophomore?

“The most challenging thing about being a water polo team captain as a sophomore is adjusting to becoming a leader for people who I look up to as leaders for myself.”

What skills have you acquired from your two leadership positions?

“My leadership positions have taught me about how important teamwork is.  I once associated the word “leader” with an individual, but now I realize how important teamwork is to be a leader.  Leading is not working alone but ensuring everyone is included in the process.  Every choice and idea is truly a group effort when you are in a community like Sacred Heart Greenwich.”
