1.    What brought you to the Women's Center? 

September 28, 2020

As a woman of color, immigrant, child of immigrants and multilingual social worker, I tend to see the world through a unique lens. My minority identities afford me a superpower of always finding and feeling the gaps in systems in which I live. I often feel pulled to create space for myself and others who don’t always feel included.

Year: 3rd
Major: Psychology, Cognitive Science

1.    What brought you to the Women's Center?

I was curious about finding a more focused and intentional volunteer group, which is how I ended up here once my professor nudged me towards this program. I hate that the actual Women's Center is closed; everyone should visit the place at least once!

2.    If you could describe YWLP in 3 words, how would you describe it?

Embracing, mindful, energizing.

Name: Reva Joshi
Year: 2
Major: Political and Social Thought
Hometown: Vienna, VA

1.   What brought you to the Women's Center?
Mentorship is always something I have been passionate about, and I knew I wanted to pursue that in college. I also think the Women’s Center is such a unique and phenomenal space for students of all backgrounds and ideas to come together. A girl in my sorority told me about YWLP, which seemed like the perfect way for me to get involved in both. She encouraged me to apply, and it was the best decision I ever made!

Major: Youth & Social Innovation

1.    What brought you to the Women's Center?
Initially for the counseling resources, but I am interested in entering a profession after graduation that helps specifically adolescents (possibly social work or school counselor), so the Women’s Center was a great way for me to get introduced to the field of helping young women explore who they are!
