About Krysia Lafferty

 

Krysia Lafferty - Professional Summary:    

Passionate about marathon running from a very early age, Krysia Lafferty has set records while pursuing her favorite sport. At 14, she became the youngest person to ever participate in an Italian marathon after completing the Florence Marathon; and at 21, she was the youngest participant in the Antarctica Marathon, which was also the seventh continent’s only organized athletic event in history. Between these two accomplishments, Krysia Lafferty competed in marathons all over the world, including the Geneva marathon at age 15, the Milo Marathon in Manila, Philippines at age 18, and the Athens Classic Marathon at age 20.

A self-described “global citizen,” Krysia Lafferty is an American who grew up in the Philippines but has traveled the world to pursue not only her love of running but also educational and work opportunities. She attended the Ecole Internationale de Genève-La Grande Boissière in Geneva, Switzerland, and the Brent International School of Manila, earning her International Baccalaureate Bilingual Diploma from the latter in 2009. Lafferty then attended DePaul University in Chicago, majoring in communications and serving as a full-time student athlete during her freshman and sophomore years. In 2011, Lafferty traveled to Athens, Greece to participate in a study abroad program at Dikemes-International Center for Hellenic and Mediterranean Studies. Krysia Lafferty has also participated in professional internships in other countries, including working as an Account Managing Intern for an advertising company in London and as a Media and Partnerships Intern for a sports marketing firm in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

When not pursuing her love of running, Krysia Lafferty can be found mentoring and tutoring elementary school children as a volunteer for the Cabrini Green Tutoring Program, or handing out sack lunches to those in need at the Seton Sandwich kitchen.
