Alumni Changing the World

Elizabeth Hunt Brockway '08

Senior Photo Editor and Illustrator, The Daily Beast
Elizabeth Hunt Brockway (know as Lizzie while a Hopper) is a senior photo editor and illustrator at The Daily Beast in New York City. A GDS-lifer, Elizabeth graduated in 2008, after which she attended the Gallatin School of Individualized Studies at NYU, where she focused on art history and photography, and graduated in 2012. Elizabeth worked in the fashion and beauty industry throughout college and a few years post-grad, spending most of her time working at Vogue and Into The Gloss, where she subsequently helped launch the latter’s now cult-favorite beauty brand, Glossier. She then obtained a master’s degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 2016. Her work has appeared on NPR and Marketplace, as well as Vogue, i-D, and Cherry Bombe, but her crowning achievement remains a leading story from Breitbart calling her work “creepy.”
