Humans of Sacred Heart – Haley Horn '17


Haley Horn
What did you do over the summer?
“Over the summer, I traveled to Africa for a service trip. I had the opportunity to spend my time with the orphans in the girls’ home and teach the scholarship students at the private school in the Kitongo village of Tanzania. On the way there, we got to stop in Dubai for a day and we visited the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. It was an extraordinary experience and I hope to return on the same service trip next summer.”
How does it feel to be a senior?
“I am still kind of adjusting to the whole idea of being the oldest in the school. It is pretty cool having a lot more freedom. School days feel a tad longer now and I also have supplements and applications to worry about on top of homework. Nonetheless, I know that all the hard work will pay off once the acceptance letters start arriving.”
What senior traditions are you most excited for?
“I think I am most excited for singing the Twelve Days of Christmas at morning meeting. Christmas is my favorite holiday and there is nothing better than getting into the spirit with a classic Christmas song.”
How are you involved in the community?
“I am a brand new member of the school bell choir. I am so excited to be a part of the program and contribute my musical expertise to the group.  I am also involved in the Barat Foundation. It is great group to be a part of and I encourage all underclassmen to apply. Lastly, I love playing sports for the school in the winter and spring.”
The King Street Chronicle thanks senior Haley Horn ’17 for her contributions to “Humans of Sacred Heart”.
