Ousseni Bouda '19
Stanford University
When it came time for me to commit to a school, the choice was simple. I wanted a school that had the best combination of academics and soccer opportunities, and Stanford was the three-year reigning NCAA men’s soccer champion during my first three years of high school. After becoming familiar with the team and the school, I learned how hard the players work on the pitch and in the classroom and witnessed the high standards they set and maintain for themselves and each other. I want to be the best I can possibly be, and I want to push my limits and be challenged every day. A few goals in a championship game wouldn’t be so bad either. Millbrook gave me a level of comfort and confidence that made me ready for whatever comes next. As a prefect and soccer captain, I learned how to be a team player, and I feel comfortable helping, encouraging, and working with people. I am also not afraid to ask for help when I need it. I am grateful for every second I spent at Millbrook and the opportunities I have been afforded because of it.
