When I came to UCLA, I was extremely overwhelmed by the copious amounts of clubs offered here. I felt the pressure to follow those around me and sign up for multiple commitments, so passionate about being a part of everything. It was difficult to keep my true passions in mind and which clubs would align with what I was truly searching for. This is why it took me until my 2nd year to find out about Bruin Belles. In this club I have found more than I could’ve wanted in an organization on this huge campus. I have found opportunities to get involved in the community, something I had loved doing in high school and had been missing during my first year in college. I have found mentors who have shown me genuine support and effort in helping me pursue my professional endeavors. Most importantly I have found an amazing group of women whom I consider some of my closest friends. Every Belle I have been able to get to know has inspired me in one way or another. Coming from all different backgrounds, it is amazing the diverse passions and personalities that have been able to come together on this campus and form such a cohesive and supportive organization. I am so grateful for Bruin Belles and the formative impact it’s had on my college experience. I am so glad I get to continue being endlessly inspired by these women for one more year on this amazing campus!
