In her free time, Liza is active in the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) and Latin American Dance clubs. During homecoming, she participated in the annual girls’ powder-puff football game.
For International Education Week, Liza gave five presentations about Russia. Her audience sat riveted in their seats, all eyes on Liza as she captivated them with a 50-minute presentation where she taught the audience several Russian words, quizzed them, and handed out prizes from Russia.
Liza’s host family and teachers describe her as a role model for both American and foreign exchange students—she is quietly enthusiastic about everything she does, sees and learns, is the first person ready to participate with a smile on her face, and always far exceeds expectations.
Her French teacher said, "I wish I had more students like Liza. She is a leader in this class. I love her."
