My name is Anthony Buenafe, proud member of the Class of 2008.

What Students Say

The social media marketing techniques I’ve learned are practical, not just in the college setting but for my future career as well. Being in an internship class enabled me to explore women’s issues, and helped me find my passion in global development.
Joie Zhang, Intern, 2012-13
I have learned more than I thought I would and I love the work I am doing spreading the word about the awesome resources the Women’s Center has to offer students around Grounds. I am so honored to have the opportunity to be a part of helping, supporting, and empowering women in our community.
Erin Ennis, Intern, 2012-13
Interning at the UVa Women’s Center has broadened my knowledge of how social media can be used to promote events and raise awareness. I have learned how to communicate effectively across social media platforms; what works, and what does not.
Kaitlin Mackie, Volunteer
