What made you want to join Kairos in the first place?

When I visited campus on Lee Day, I had a personal meeting with the then-VP of Recruitment, John Weeks, because I couldn't attend the interest meeting the following day. He described a compelling community dedicated to curiosity and excellence, and I knew I had found the place I wanted to call home.

Plans after graduation: Most notably, I am getting married in late August. (I actually met my fiancé through Kairos, so I’m deeply grateful to Kairos for him as well!) Besides that, I am planning on taking at least one year off from school to work, though I intend to apply to grad school. I also hope to travel a bit more and finally accomplish a life-long dream of owning a cat.

Piece of advice: Try everything you can – you might find a new love! Start each day knowing that whatever yesterday was, you have an opportunity to try today differently.

Congradulations Lizzie!
