Commencement Profiles

Elena Stankovska '09
The Internationalist

Major: International Studies 

Hometown: Nessebur, Bulgaria

Why I Chose Adelphi: Adelphi offered me the major that I have always wanted, and its location was essential because it was close to the U.N. headquarters, which is where all the international issues are discussed and leaders from all over the world meet. I decided that among the schools that I applied to, Adelphi University would best develop my potential and help me pursue my ambitions.

Future Plans: In September 2009, beginning graduate study in international security studies at St. Andrews University

Favorite Campus Hotspots: The Honors College, the Center for Recreation and Sports (soccer field), and the Ruth S. Harley University Center

Movie That Most Clearly Mirrors My Life: The Pursuit of Happiness for the hard work and the restless belief in the better day of tomorrow

In 10 Years, I Will Be: The Bulgarian that made her people proud of their nationality and started the change that Bulgarians have been longing to see.
