AYSPS student working towards an international future
Grace Lee, a senior majoring in Public Policy at the Andrew Young School, is one of those truly exceptional students who combine youthful dynamism, unbridled enthusiasm for education, and a sincere desire to actively participate in their school’s student life.
Lee jumped into the GSU experience with both feet when she started her first year at the school as part of a Freshman Learning Community, joining the GSU Welcome center and the LEAD Team. “When I came to visit GSU for orientation, I was immediately taken by its character, so much so that I fell in love with the school almost right away,” Lee recalls.
From there, Lee’s educational and professional experience at GSU would only get more illustrious. Over the course of the last several years, Lee has been involved in a wide range of campus organizations, including the Jumpstart Corps Program, Baptist Collegiate Ministries, the Model United Nations, and the Spotlight Programs Board. In 2011, she was crowned GSU’s Homecoming Queen, becoming the third Asian student to receive this title.
GSU has also given Lee the opportunity to experience new places and cultures as part of a study abroad program in China. This international experience has motivated her to seek career opportunities outside of the United States. “Following my graduation, one of the things I’d like to do is to return to China,” Lee says, “this time around as an English instructor.”
Later, Lee hopes to pursue a Master’s degree, though she has not yet decided on the academic field she wishes to enter. Whatever her decision ends up being, however, it is a certainty that Lee’s time at GSU has been well-spent, and that the university will be proud of featuring such a distinguished young person among its alumni.
