Since graduating from Whitby School in 2018, Seneca Schwartz has been excelling at John Jay High school in Cross River NY. Recently, Seneca gave a TED Talk entitled " Why Don't More Girls like Jumping Off Walls? Three Observations from a Female Parkour Athlete." In this talk, Seneca takes you on her journey in the male-dominated world of Parkour. Seneca discusses strategies in dismantling stereotypes to create a more inclusive environment. Seneca exhibits many of the IB profile traits Whitby instills in students and also shows great courage and confidence in her presentation.
