Shorecrest graduate Suzanna Fritzberg of Lake Forest Park was just named as a Rhodes Scholar.

The Yale senior is majoring in women's gender and sexuality studies, and will use her scholarship at Oxford University in England to study comparative social policy and examine welfare programs in other countries.

She has previously served internships at the Roosevelt Institute and the New Orleans public defender's office.

According to her official bio,

"She has also been active with the Yale Women’s Center organizing events to increase the awareness of domestic violence, as a stage manager and producer for the Yale Dramatic Association, as a writing tutor, and in grassroots politics."
Her reaction?
"At this point I'm just excited to see where Oxford is going to take me," said Fritzberg, who has never studied abroad and hasn't traveled much. This is just a huge opportunity to learn more about the world," Fritzberg said.
