I could not be more thankful that my path crossed with Women's eNews. After attending an International Women’s Day luncheon held in their office and getting acquainted with the editor-in-chief, Rita Henley Jensen, I was offered an internship position that I could not pass up. I shared with Rita that I had been struggling for years trying to transition into the non-profit sector and a week later, I received an email asking that I come into the office to discuss an internship opportunity. Not only have I always wanted to work for a non-profit organization, but I have always had a passion for women's issues and for being a part of a community that gives women the voices they deserve. Well, Women's eNews does exactly that! Its dedication to international, as well as domestic coverage, of stories is impressive and enlightening. Coming from a Middle-Eastern and Muslim background, I appreciate the work that Women's eNews does internationally and the way in which it covers issues and stories that would otherwise go unheard. It has been an invaluable work experience to witness this organization's unique ability to bring together women from all different backgrounds, industries, and cultures to unite their forces and join together in the cause of celebrating and empowering women worldwide.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
