Story Trapp

Friends Graduating Class of 2011

“I graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2022 with a degree in Integrative Physiology. Since then I have moved to the Seattle area where I am working, while also training, to become a medical assistant at a local community health center. After gaining certification and experience I hope to find my niche within healthcare and can’t wait to see what happens from there!”

Kylie Feliciano

Friends Graduating Class of 2011

“After graduating in 2022 from the University of Southern California with a degree in Neuroscience and a minor in Marketing, I stayed in Los Angeles and got my first job working in performance marketing while maintaining a second part-time job in the Twitch/streaming space. I am now about to start a new job working at Night Media—home to some of the largest digital creators—to pursue becoming a talent manager in the gaming creator space!” 

Caylin McCalpin

Friends Graduating Class of 2009

From 2023: “I am currently living in Berlin and working as a Software Engineer. I attended University in Scotland where I had a great experience and still visit regularly. During university I also came out as a lesbian and in the ensuing years have become quite involved in activism to get more women and queer people into the tech industry. Outside of work, I travel frequently in Western Europe and recently have begun training for my first 5k.”

Isabel “Abbie” Oakley

Friends Graduating Class of 2007

“I graduated from University of Oregon a couple years ago with a double major in Religious Studies and International Studies – focusing on conflict resolution. Post-college I have spent time traveling and learning about myself! Though out of school in the traditional sense, I still consider myself an avid and dedicated student in the school of the world. I have stumbled, skipped, and hopped along my path as a writer and am currently authoring a series of children’s graphic novels, The Brainy Books of Duh, which will be finished next year. The series is teaching children to use their brains and minds as superpowers! It has brought many late nights, big laughs, and beauty into my life.”

Friends school was the oasis I needed as a child… I still remember walking into the hallways for the first time and seeing all the colors and artwork everywhere… It was a safe haven! I loved my teacher, and felt so seen and encouraged to be myself. It was where my love of books and writing started to bloom. I transformed from a rebel in my old school, to a great student and leader at Friends!”

“I’m grateful that Friends school exists as a place to encourage each child’s unique light to shine.”

From 2022: My senior year I spent competing in Cyclocross, playing tuba with a local orchestra, and participating in my school’s social justice club called No Place For Hate that works to create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone. I also had the opportunity to play soccer and we ended up winning the state championship… I am looking forward to this summer when I will be working at Friends School with the summer camps…. thank you to Friends School for being such an amazing place that helps students grow into the best versions of themselves.
