A 2022 graduate of Dowling Catholic High School in West Des Moines, Iowa, Zuzia will attend Creighton University. Zuzia shared that many factors went into her decision to enroll.

"I fell in love with the nursing program and all of its rave reviews from friends and past students, and when I discovered their curriculum and core values were faith-based I knew it would be the school for me."

At Creighton, Zuzia will major in Nursing and shared that "after I graduate with my BSN, I hope to gain some experience in the nursing field, and then I will look into furthering my education and becoming a Nurse Practitioner or a Midwife."

We asked Zuzia:

What aspect of your college/university are you most excited about?
The faith opportunities all around campus!

What advice would you share with soon-to-be high school seniors as they begin their senior year?
Enjoy your senior year and really take in those small moments. Even though everyone says it flies by, you don't realize how fast it actually does. It will be over in a blink.

We know the past few years of your high school career have been different than what you imagined they would be; what is one positive thing that came out of the experience?
I was able to get really close with the friends I knew would be around for the rest of my life. I really was able to solidify those relationships and nurture them. 

What is one fun fact about you?
I own my own baking business!
