As an incoming Sophomore at GW, I wanted a place on campus that would give me two things: a community and professional development. Although I thought I would find that within GW through various clubs, organizations, and internships, little did I know that I could find those two qualities in one organization -- GW Women in Business.

GW Women in Business. It's all in the name, I thought.
As a fall-semester freshman I joined because I fit that name. I’m a woman, at GW, studying business: it seemed obvious. What more could there be? I paid my dues, picked up my shirt and called it a day.
I remember walking into the first GWWIB general body meeting in September and looking into the crowd of girls without knowing anyone. I took my seat and watched as the presentation began, I immediately was mesmerized at the opportunities GWWIB offered.
I have been able to learn so much more than I initially anticipated. Rewind to the beginning of this year, and I was applying to be an ambassador with the hopes of gaining leadership experience while contributing to an organization I was passionate about.

Last semester, starting at a college that is highly competitive both in terms of academic and professional standards, I grappled with where I was going to fit in. I knew what my end career goal was, I knew what I wanted my major to be, I knew I had ambition. I simply had no idea where to start. Then, I found a place that made GW feel a little more like home.

If you told me a year ago that i’d join a new student organization during my last year of college that would have such an impact on me, I would think you’re crazy. As I prepared for senior year, I was planning to stay committed to the organizations I had been a part of for years and having another student org be one of my big rocks was not on my radar.
