Isabella Calpakis of Long Island, NY, graduated in May 2016 with degrees in Economics and Communications and a minor in Public Health. Upon graduation, Isabella will be traveling to Greece to work at Ionian Village before moving to New York City in the fall for a full-time job. As part of the Levine Scholars Program, Isabella interned at Make-A-Wish Foundation in Charlotte, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America in New York City, the City of Charlotte mayor's office, and Ryan Seacrest Studios at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte. She spent the spring 2015 at the University of Nicosia in Cyprus and summer 2015 studying abroad at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. "Without the help and support of the Levine Scholars Program, I would not have been able to gain the global perspective I now have," said Isabella. Isabella served on the Executive Board of Charlotte Dance Marathon, where she was awarded Top Individual Fundraiser in both 2014 and 2015. She founded UNC Charlotte's first chapter of Orthodox Christian Fellowship and now serves on the national board as the Public Relations Chair.
