Originally from Cyprus, Greece, Stefanie Alexandrou Bodkin (Class of 2011), said she came to Lee because she wanted to double major and the U.S. educational system is the only one that allowed her dream to become a reality.
Bodkin is now in graduate school at the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, Calif.
During her time at Lee, Stefanie was heavily involved with the theatre department and the National Theatre Honors Society.
She also worked in the library her first semester at Lee, in residential life for three months, and in the Office of Public Information for the remainder of her college career. Bodkin received several awards and scholarships during her time at Lee including Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities two years in a row.
Thinking back on her college experience, Bodkin said, “I think the amount of hours I spent working on shows developed me as an artist, a believer, a performer, and a professional.”
