Alexandra Krupp ’06
"Ask questions, push boundaries and own your own learning.”
"From the moment Kent Place introduced me to French in Primary School, I was enthralled. When I got to the Upper School, I wanted to create a community of other young women who felt as passionately as I did about French language and culture – so with the support of my faculty mentors, I founded the French Club. We had Parisian pen pals, cooked French food and discussed politics and culture in France and French-speaking countries.
“This taught me to ask questions, push boundaries and own my own learning: As a senior, I created a French language and culture independent study, focusing on Maghrebi immigrants in France. From there, I went on to earn a certificate in French at Princeton University. These experiences inspired me to take last year off from work to travel the world, the result of the deep love of learning and exploring new cultures fostered at Kent Place.”
