Lisa Kriszun '12

An outstanding student leader in Berlin, Germany, where she grew up, Lisa Kriszun could have picked any college. She chose Wheelock, "the best school to prepare me to be a teacher in the US."

Lisa has developed and taught a 10-week computer curriculum to senior citizens, worked in a preschool, and served as a representative to the Global Young Leaders Conference in New York and Washington, DC.

"When you interact with students from so many places, you learn not only to tolerate and respect different cultures and traditions, but to truly embrace and welcome them."
