Major: Biology & Economics

From:Arlington, VA

Coming from Mali and growing up right outside a cultural hub like Washington, DC, Lysa always had an interest in sharing her culture and learning about others’. This interest also developed with a love for youth mentorship and education, from being involved in student initiatives with the Arlington County School Board and with her local community center.

At Lafayette, Lysa serves as a team leader and MOSAIC program coordinator where she plans and organizes weekly volunteering with teenagers at the Easton Area Community Center. She also serves as co-president of Grossman House for Global Perspectives, where students live and learn about global issues, traditions, and experiences from each other. Lysa also loves tennis, traveling, cooking, and music and is very excited to meet all the students!
