Broward International Women's Club
March 22, 2011

The first board meeting I attended happened to be followed by a yearly event were the scholarship grant check is handed to Nova Southeastern University, attended by University representatives, grant recipient students and some of our Club members. It was such a treat to meet these young women who were so determined to become professionals that they didn't stop at the fact that these careers were simply not available in their countries. It was very inspiring to listen to them talk about their plans once they finished and went back home. Education doesn't only changes the life of the person who receives it but also those around them, education it's the only hope for many countries that live in poverty, to raise their quality of life.

The Broward International Women's Club actively makes the selection of the girls who will receive the scholarships, through a process established by the organization, which includes evaluation of the grades and inclination to give back. I'm very proud to belong to this organization.
