Alicia Groat began her journey at St Mary's in Year 8. At first, Alicia wasn't too keen on coming to the school. However, the college grew on her and in many ways taught her how to be courageous and confident in her own abilities. Most of her growth as a person happened when she was on the Vietnam Pilgrimage. Here she learnt the true meaning of social justice, creating unforgettable relationships with the Vietnamese children.
