Lydia graduated from Zeeland West High School in 2018 and is studying at Grand Valley State University.
Lydia always dreamed of a college education and is academically driven. She has enjoyed the support of her nuclear and even extended family.
“By far, however, my great-grandpa has always encouraged me the most to work hard to obtain a higher education. Even today, he reminds me that there are even more things to learn.”
Lydia plans to pursue a major in Biology and a minor in Spanish. She hopes to become an obstetrician-gynecologist because, “above all, I intend to be educated on how to improve the lives of fellow human beings.”
