It’s two weeks out from graduation. I just ordered my cap and gown and my diploma. I am finishing my final papers and presentations. I am beyond excited for the next chapter of my life, but I can’t help think back on my time with Belles. Joining Bruin Belles my freshman year gave me a home at UCLA. It is true that big schools are overwhelming and with 31,000 undergrads, UCLA sure is a lot to take in. So I took a chance on Bruin Belles, and it changed my life. I have met my best friends in the world in this organization – strong, independent, passionate woman who will always have my back and encourage me to be a better person. Bruin Belles has given me the chance to make a difference in the Los Angeles community and give back to the area that has given me so much. Between reading to children at elementary schools on Saturday mornings to pulling weeds at nature reserves, I truly believe I have improved Los Angeles over the past 4 years. On top of that, Belles has made me realize the power of women, and how amazing each and every one of us is. The annual Women’s Leadership Conference inspired me to not fear the future, but to embrace opportunity and challenges. Being a woman in this century is not always easy but it’s a lot more manageable when you have a group of women supporting you. Bruin Belles has given me the opportunity to grow and challenge myself, and I am beyond thankful for this organization. Thank you Bruin Belles for everything! I am going to miss this wonderful, strong, beautiful family at UCLA.
