I actually work for the non-profit that I support - The Bryn Mawr School for Girls in Baltimore, MD. I'm inspired to give back to the school because I see - every single day - the passion and drive of our faculty members and the incredible talent and potential of the young women who attend our school. The Bryn Mawr School was founded 131 years ago and the five founders were determined to offer girls the opportunity to receive the same quality of education then available to boys - it was a RADICAL idea for its time.
Bryn Mawr believe girls are amazing and that there are no limits to what our students can become. Bryn Mawr puts girls first, providing an excellent education, a wide range of experiences, and a liberal dose of encouragement in order to grow into strong, smart, healthy, and powerful women. Our students learn the joy of discovery, of raising the bar and achieving even more than they thought they were capable of.
I am proud to work for and donate to such a wonderful organization!
