Palm Academy Student Center (TK-8)


Name: Anna De La Rosa
Age: 14 Grade: 8
I chose: Palm Academy
Why? Because I like that the teachers get
to know each student.
Anna says: “I want to travel the world,
learn different recipes and come home
and open a restaurant.” She advises new
students to do their best, test their limits,
and make lots of friends. In addition to
cooking, Anna enjoys playing the piano,
drawing, and swimming.
