Lizbeth is a Marketing major with a minor in Education, Schooling, and Society from the first state, Delaware. She is both an AnBryce Scholar and a QuestBridge Scholar. With various interests in public policy, she is most passionate about education equity and immigration reform. 

During her first year, she was introduced to the Student Policy Network (SPN) and is now a part of the Indiana Driving Record Card project at Notre Dame which aims to compile research for legislators on how a DRC could positively impact the state of Indiana. Furthermore, her love for music does not go unnoticed. Lizbeth is also a piccolo in the Notre Dame Marching Band and has been playing the flute for about ten years now. 

In 2022, Lizbeth got to spend seven weeks in Homestead, Florida with the Balfour-Hesburgh Scholars and the Mexican American Council. There, she mentored Latinx students and helped prepare them for college and future careers. This meaningful experience reinforced her passion for education and nonprofit work. As a first-generation Mexican-American, Lizbeth's goal is to give back to her community by creating and making resources more accessible.
