CBA Spotlight: Lee Noto
Class of 2012
She may be 4’11”, but Lee Noto certainly stands out among the Class of 2012!
A native of Boynton Beach, Florida, Noto wasted no time getting involved at UCF upon her arrival. While a student, she was an active member in many organizations and received numerous awards and scholarships based on her leadership skills. She was the recipient of the 2012 Founders' Day Award from the college and was selected to the Order of Pegasus, UCF’s most prestigious student award. Additionally, she was a resident assistant, a LEAD Scholar and a member of the President’s Leadership Council.
As a result of her experiences, she would “absolutely” recommend UCF to other students. “After getting so involved on campus and in the Orlando community, this school feels much smaller than it actually is. These have been the best four years of my life and years that I will remember forever,” she said. “UCF offers so many diverse opportunities and a wonderful college environment.”
When asked about her best college memory, she replied: “There are too many to count! I’ve had so many amazing memories that I will cherish forever. It’s been great meeting well-balanced young adults that are focused and ambitious, but also like to enjoy themselves and have fun!”
Noto graduated with a degree in Management (Entrepreneurship) and a minor in Spanish. She served as an intern in the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, where she was able to sharpen her marketing and management skills. Upon graduation, she plans to move to Hawaii to pursue her passion for travel and culture as a Teach for America Fellow. There is no doubt she will succeed in her new adventure.
“I have eclectic taste and I’m very open-minded. I’ll try almost anything once, maybe even twice! Life is too short to not fully live it, so bring it on!” she said.
