WNT Player Pens Letter for The Players' Tribune

Dear 15-year-old Kacey,

How about that entrance?

The long driveway that winds up to a group of ivy covered buildings, all framed by the pines clustered on the Berkshire Hills - the whole setting is beautiful, isn't it?

I know, I know. You've driven through it once before. Only a couple of months ago, you arrived at the foot of Mount Everett in Massachusetts to visit the Berkshire School.

And now? This is the entrance to your home for the next four years. You're about to be something you never though you'd be: a prep school student.

But you're so excited. All those years of playing travel hockey with boys didn't exactly make it easy for you to make girl friends. Now, you have the opportunity to build relationships with people from all over the world. I guess this is what Dad meant when he told you to "get out of your comfort zone."
