As I finish up my third year in Bruin Belles, I want to reflect on the friendships that I have made. First, finding out who my baby Belle was and then, a year later, finding out who her baby Belle was are two memories that remain with me today. I remember feeling so excited knowing that I would have these two girls to share my experiences in Belles and at UCLA with. The countless number of events that I have attended plays a large role in the relationships that I have built. Bruin Belles has such a diverse group of women with so many different experiences. It is through these opportunities that I have really gotten to know my fellow Belles.
Sharing the extraordinary experiences with those in Belles helps strengthen the friendships we build. I have attended galas for several nonprofits, sorted clothes for children, decorated locker rooms, and so much more. I have been on the Golden Globes red carpet and on top of the Capitol Records building. I have been on many brunch excursions and hikes. No matter the event, I love spending time with my fellow Belles while experiencing everything that the LA community has to offer.
Bruin Belles has given me the chance to grow and experience worlds beyond my own, and I would never have been able to create so many amazing friendships without this organization.
