Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA
I am a new student-member of AAUW. I learned about AAUW at the university I currently attend because they recently established an AAUW student organization on campus. My AAUW student org president initiated our sector after attending a NCCWSL conference. She was so inspired that she felt an urge to bring such a powerful organization to her fellow students. Every time I met someone who had been to the conference, they would express to me -with great enthusiasm- that it was imperative for me to attend because it would be life changing. I attended the 2014 conference and would have to say that I was truly overwhelmed with inspiration (if there is such a thing)! I was so amazed to see such a large group of women in full support of one another. When I heard the speakers tell their stories, it felt like a burden had been lifted off my shoulders; as I had no idea that their experiences in reaching their destinations closely relates to those I face on my own journey. The wealth of encouragement, information, resources, and overall sense of power that NCCWSL instilled in all of us is something that I think every woman should experience. As such, I, too, have been inspired to, not only inform and drive more women to attend the NCCWSL conference, but to also heavily recruit more women to join in the wonders that AAUW has done daily for the empowerment of women. Thank you, sincerely, AAUW and NCCWSL!
