Looking back upon the my last 3 years at UCLA, it's impossible not to reminisce about the people who have had a powerful impact on my time here thus far. Each and every member of my belles family has inspired me with their passions, taught me something new, and blessed me with their friendship. I am so grateful to have these incredible ladies alongside me! Each of them has something that they care about deeply, and they are willing to sacrifice so much to serve the people around them.
Some of my best belles memories are when my big belle, baby belle, grand big belle, and all my other family members were revealed! It brings me so much joy to look back on all the memories and laughs we've had and to think of all that is to come. It's the moments like Women's Leadership Conference when you sit alongside each other while learning what it looks like to live empowered lives, like getting to know your future grand big for the first time at Disneyland, and like running around campus in onesies at night with your new family that leave memorable impressions on my mind and heart.
It's been said that a lot of who we are can be shaped by the people we surround ourselves with. I would consider myself extremely lucky if even a little bit of who I am was shaped by these incredible girls I get to call my belles family. Thank you to each of you for constantly inspiring me and continuing to show me what compassion and selflessness looks like. Your individual gifts, talents, and passions are lights in the world and I'm grateful that I get to see them in all you do.
