Harvard in those years was definitely the richer, more privileged institution; Radcliffe the poor relation. The boys’ accommodations in the Harvard houses were much nicer and more spacious than our shoe-box rooms in the Radcliffe dorms. We had to wait on tables and clean our own rooms; no work was required of the boys.

„Някои нравствени категории бяха много по-задължителни за учениците от колежа, отколкото за връстниците им от другите училища на страната. Нека вземем за пример така нареченото преписване по време на класни писмени упражнения и изпити. За нашите американски учители дори името на това явление беше друго: наричаха го не „copy”, a „cheat” т. е. „измама“. Нещо повече: наказанието за таква простъпка беше автоматично изключване от колежа. Подобна измама се считаше за непростимо престъпление, което не можеше да се търпи в никаква степен.”

The thing about acting in its true sense, I think, is that you have to be very, very open to let things pass through you, to be willing to experience things, to be broken, to be exhilarated. You have to accept that you are a vehicle of emotions. It’s a high, an addiction actors feel. You want to feel, you want to experience things, you want to cry; it really is like a drug. You want more and more. So, to be pushed even beyond that, I think, is the dream of every actor.

ACS encourages this kind of self-discovery and exploration, but it also changes you at a deeper level – the way you view yourself, your place in the world, and your relationship to others around you. It’s not possible to just drift through this school. Rather, there is a slow-motion alchemical reaction that unfolds as you pass from grade to grade. You change fundamentally during your time here. ACS in turn permits itself to be changed by each one of its classes.

…Why I wanted to get to Sofia so badly, I don’t recall anymore, but it wasn’t on one of the designated days when it was allowed, yet I was determined to go. At the College gate there was a guard in uniform, so I had to leave from somewhere else to avoid being caught; I had chosen the fence at the back. I had to do it outside lunch hours, too, so that most students would be in class. So I arranged with a friend of mine to skip foreign language class – she studied German and I French – and to meet at the chosen spot by the fence a little after 3 o’clock. How would I jump over the fence? She would help me up. I jumped over and picked up my bag.

Nelly: I think that the one thing I truly dislike in the school system in general is that the focus has shifted from learning to memorizing, from creating something meaningful to writing just enough to get a 6. Our brains are filled with rubrics that we have to follow and the whole purpose of thinking is lost.
Nia: […]Happiness is when I do the things that I love and want to do. That’s my goal in life.
