Young Women Rising provided me with a community of like-minded people who were committed to social justice and gender equity. The program gave me a voice and permission to truly begin my feminist awakening. Not only was YWRising instrumental in terms of my personal development, it also helped shape my career goals and aspirations.
This program has impacted me positively because I’ve met a lot of positive women. It’s great to have a program where young women can network and share their experiences and continue to promote awareness of issues that impact women and make a difference.
