Graduate Spotlight: Naya Valdivieso Wooldridge

I have been dancing at Atlanta Ballet for 16 years beginning with Mommy and Me classes when I was 2 years old. Dance to me is joy! I can’t imagine anything in the world can match the feeling of dancing on stage.

I am receiving both a bilingual certificate in Spanish and a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) endorsement upon graduating this year from Atlanta International School.

Next year, I plan on taking a gap year in which I’ll be attending patisserie school and traveling before attending the University of Edinburgh, studying chemical engineering or physics in 2022.

It’s been a long journey but definitely one I will look back on fondly.
