Elizabeth Barsalou

“I once wanted to sing solos so I could impress people. At AGS I learned that I wanted to perform with other people and that life was more meaningful when I wasn’t alone. I found my voice on my journey to graduation and shared it through a sport, on the piano, on stage and off, and with my family and friends. I even taught younger students how to listen to their own voices through my Capstone Project. I will continue to share my voice in college and for the rest of my life.”

Elizabeth was named a National Merit semifinalist while at AGS and had an A average that included not only top grades in English, her academic passion, but grades that reached a “perfect” 100 in calculus and physics. As one of the top young sopranos in the country, she twice won top vocalist honors in the state. Elizabeth was a computer science major, interested in pursuing a career in data science and machine learning. She was a Summer Analyst in Citi’s Technology Leadership Program and interned at Kabbage, Inc., a new FinTech company. She began as a full-time analyst at Kabbage in January 2016.
