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

I found the Women’s Center in the fall of my first year when I was trying to find something similar to the social justice and women’s rights work that I was involved in during high school. Unfortunately, the application was not open at that time, so I wrote down the date and remembered to apply a couple months later!

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

I was first introduced to the Women's Center through their counseling program. I was attracted to the idea of working on a team of just women as it appeared to be a more comfortable space in which I can truly express my thoughts and feelings. On top of that, being surrounded by a group of strong, supportive, diverse women that share similar passions as me is constant motivation to be the best version of myself.

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.
