68 Arielle Mitropoulos, feeling confident

Wellesley College field hockey player, Arielle Mitropolis, celebrates with her teammates after scoring a goal.

She interned at CNN New York, Good Morning America, and WCVB-TV Channel 5 Boston. She runs the Boston Marathon every year as a fundraiser for nonprofits. She’s “riveted” by the discussions in her humanities classes. In her first year at Wellesley, she joined the field hockey team as a walk-on; in her senior year her teammates voted her to be captain. “Before I came to Wellesley, I was always concerned about failing, worried about all the things I was not good at or could not do. More than anything, Wellesley has taught me that I can do anything I set my mind to.” Class of 2019.
