What brought you to the Women's Center?

My first year at UVA, I struggled to find a place where I felt like I fit in. When I walked into the Women's Center, I immediately felt like I was at home. My internship at the Women's Center has introduced me to so many strong, empowered women who have encouraged me to be more confident in myself and I couldn't be more grateful.

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

I admire the Women’s Center as a hub of positivity, and I am eager to collaborate with and learn from activist women. I was especially interested to join the Social Media Marketing team because I wanted to use my love for words and interest in multimedia to amplify important voices.
