2014-15 Pacific Military Youth of the Year
Like many military youth, Elizabeth has moved numerous times throughout her childhood, relocating with her family to military installations in Japan, Florida, Texas, Germany and, currently, California. So many moves, along with her father’s deployment to Afghanistan, created social and educational obstacles for Elizabeth. She also suffered from chronic migraines. Needing a place to feel at home no matter where her family was based, Elizabeth joined her local Youth Center. There, she became active in Club activities and took on leadership roles. At school, she served as President of Future Business Leaders of America, President of Student2Student, and became a member of the National Honor Society, while maintaining a 4.7 GPA. Elizabeth is currently attending Harvard University.
