Lynn announces Genesis Morlabaez as its 2023 Commencement student speaker

As Lynn University concludes another academic year, 977 graduates will earn their diplomas on May 4. Genesis Morlabaez ’23 will address the graduating class as this year’s commencement student speaker.

Morlabaez is earning her Bachelor of Science in biology, a career path sparked by her calling to help others. While she was growing up, she was inspired by watching her father, a United States Marine, sacrifice to care for those in need. When her mother was diagnosed with a medical condition, it motivated her even more to make a difference.

Morlabaez served as a resident assistant, wellness educator, and president of the Future Medical Providers club for pre-med students at Lynn. Morlabaez also conducted cardiovascular health research, participated in a research symposium and accomplished archeological research with Lynn faculty. She is grateful for the personal and professional growth that she developed throughout her years at Lynn.

“There are so many opportunities to take advantage of in this university. Being able to seize them helped me come out of my shell and establish myself as a go-getter,” she said.

Morlabaez is thankful to her professors, her mother, Eve, and her father, Mo, for their support. She credits professors Daniel Ceccoli and Cassandra Korte for helping her pave the way toward success.

After graduation, Morlabaez will pursue a master’s degree in psychology at Lynn and begin her path as a physician. She also plans to serve the U.S. by enlisting in the Air Force as a medical examiner. Genesis is driven to understand the human body both physically and mentally and continue to make a positive difference.

The class of 2023 represents 36 U.S States and territories and 141 international students from 52 countries. At Commencement, Lynn will award 381 master’s and 596 bachelor’s degrees.
