A four-year student at Marvelwood, Josiah has fond memories of this time on the hill: “I loved Marvelwood. The school really helped me grow and mature as a person. I made some great friends, and I also found my passion for basketball and storytelling while I was a student. My teachers, Mr. White, Mr. Banach, Mrs. Foote, and Mr. Sanchez (just to name a few), have had an immense impact on my life. I’m eternally grateful for everything they did for me. What I miss most about Marvelwood is hanging out with my friends, playing ball in the gym, and going on the famed weekend trips!”

Josiah lives in Brooklyn, where he was born and raised. In his free time, Josiah enjoys participating in various basketball leagues throughout New York City.
