“Mr. Tlusty has been a huge factor in my academic success and I owe my love for science to this amazing teacher.”

Ana Reveles, SMCS Class of 2020

From St. Mary’s Rocket Club member to Ivy League scholar, Ana Reveles is heading to Harvard University in the fall!

Ana, a current senior at The Steward School, said she applied to Harvard thinking “I was not going to get in.” Now that she’s been accepted, she’s reflected on her application and thinks the biggest theme in her resume is her “ongoing devotion for community service and ingenuity.”

“I have always pushed myself to be an activist and have mirrored my passions with my extracurriculars,” she said. 

Ana said she’s not sure what she wants to study, but she’s headed toward a STEM field – perhaps engineering or material design.

“My biggest advice is to always push yourself and not wait for someone to give you an opportunity,” Ana said.

Ana credits Saint Mary’s and Mr. Tlusty in particular with instilling in her a sense of confidence and curiosity.
