Grace Ecklund Gustavson ’22

Grace Ecklund Gustavson ’22 has lived in many parts of Vermont over the years and is proud to now call Montpelier her home. She plans on majoring in international relations. Hopefully, she’ll be fluent in Spanish and have lived in a Spanish-speaking country for at least a semester by the time she graduates! One of her favorite quotes is by Gabriela Mistral, translated by Doris Dana: “They shall not die. No, no one dies except he who has never lived.”
