Hello I'm Lizz! I graduated high school in 2011 from Baldwinsville, NY and went out to Utah State University for a year, just to try something new and snowboard. However as much as I love the nature out there, the education wasn't what I needed so I transferred to RIT. I've found myself faced with so many amazing opportunities since I began my visual media major. I have grown so much as a person since being here and my work ethic has too (for the better). I recently volunteered in South Africa for a month and I cannot wait to go back! I love traveling and doing adventurous thing as often as I can. For example I went bungee jumping with a 700ft free fall - but that's a whole other story. I also love cliff jumping, four-wheeling, snowboarding, running, and of course Netflix.
