JFEW Scholar Lydia Senatus recently graduated from Stony Brook University! Lydia graduated with a degree in Economics after deciding to make a switch from Health Sciences after her freshman year, and she says that her decision to switch to a major that she truly enjoyed was one of the best decisions she made in college.
While in school, Lydia worked as a peer mentor to assist fellow students and peers in applying to college scholarships. Every semester she hosted writing workshops to assist students in making their applications much stronger, and improving their ability to fund their education. She says of her experience, "I think the most important part of creating a legacy is not what you as an individual have accomplished, but rather how you have helped other people with their accomplishments."
Lydia, we are so inspired by your tenacity and drive, and we can't wait to see what is next for you!
