Lizzy, here’s the scenario:
The people who know you best are gathered into a room together and asked to figure out what they agree are one of your “worst” and “best” features. What would they come up with?
“My people would say that I get cabin fever a little too easily and am very vocal about it. I can be a little eager and a little annoying trying to get my friends and family to start little projects with me to do with anything from quilting to backpacking. My brothers would tell me to take a chill pill!
My people would say that I am up for any adventure whether it be cool, weird or just different. When I find things that are really unique and important to me (like beekeeping) I really go all in and try to share that experience with others.”

We were so excited to meet Lizzy (and others) this past fall while working on the Great Ape House mural, visiting with her and a handful of incredible students at Georgetown University. Lizzy is the head of Hoya Hive (@hoyahive), Georgetown’s beekeeping organization, having received a grant in partnership with professors William Hahn and Cynthia Wei to create a bee campus.
This national initiative aims to make an overall safe environment for pollinators on Georgetown’s campus, seeking to expand their on-site bee hives, investing in research and increasing campus awareness for pollinators everywhere!
