"Suffolk made me me. It made me smarter and funnier and bolder. I’m ready for whatever this world has in store for me."

Elizabeth's Suffolk Story

Ever since I was eight years old, I knew what I wanted to do. I’ve known that I want to be a news broadcaster on Good Morning America for over 10 years now.

When I was touring schools, Suffolk was near the top of my list. But it wasn't until accepted students’ day that I made my decision that Suffolk was the school for me. Ever since that day, I have loved Suffolk. Never have I felt so accepted for being completely myself. Even in my freshman year, Suffolk has already helped me to grow and mature into the person I want to be.

My favorite thing about Suffolk is that they encourage you to try new things, to step out of your comfort zone. I did that multiple times this year. I have always looked back on that experience with a smile, knowing that I am on my way to conquering all of my dreams.

Thank you, Suffolk, for helping me to grow up to be the person I want to be, in the city that I love. Thank you for always accepting me, whether in the classroom, library, or cafeteria. I am so grateful that I chose Suffolk because I wouldn't be the person I am today if my decision had gone any other way.
