Sailing enthusiast and Portsmouth High School (PHS) freshman, Magdalena Tabak, is the recipient of Semco Orthodontics’ second annual “Ten Words or Less” $1000 College Scholarship. Tabak’s answer to the question "what is your idea of perfect happiness" transported the Semco Orthodontics Scholarship Committee into her mind with the winning words:
“afloat… luffing sail, laughing gull… sheeting in, a journey shared.”
In addition to sailing, Magda plays basketball and lacrosse. She is also a part of the PHS music program playing flute and violin. She grew up speaking Polish and English and visits her grandparents in Poland every year. Her aspirations include Veterinary Science and the WNBA.
