Beyond the Ivy Walls: Maya Lange ’93
When did you come to Crofton House? Why?
I came to Crofton House in Grade 7 – back when that was the first year of the Senior School. I was part of the ‘West Van Bus Gang’ – it took us a while to get to school each day but it was a community within a community!
What is you most vivid memory of your time at CHS?
The teachers – they were so encouraging and amazing to work with.
Classroom time – both the learning and the friendships that were forged through studying.
I also loved the assemblies – something about coming together as a school has really played a large role in my memories about CHS.
What led you to the career you have now – what inspired you?
I have always really loved communicating with people. So much of my career has been driven by passion rather than skills. If you have the passion or interest in a certain area you can gain the skills.
How did CHS help prepare you for the world outside of the ivy walls?
The belief that women can do anything. I never thought I couldn’t achieve what I wanted to. Crofton gave me the confidence that everything was possible.
What message would you give the girls as they start looking towards their future?
Keep a very open mind. Talk to as many people as possible about anything that interests you – get first hand info when making choices.
