Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA
I did not know much about AAUW until a friend of mine reached out and invited me to apply for a scholarship to go to NCWWSL 2014. I do not believe in coincidence. I know that everything happens for a reason. There was a real reason why I went to that conference; it has honestly changed my life! It was comforting to see that there were like-minded women who desired to achieve that which has been perceived as unattainable. I was able to move forward in my own plans after hearing from strong role models and even stronger peers. I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and I look forward to attending the next conference! One day, I hope to sponsor another eager young woman. It is important to give back. We have to know that in order to truly survive, we need each other. I am currently working on my own business and laying down some solid foundation for my career. Thank you NCWWSL and thank you AAUW!
