Coming to UCLA, my biggest fear was that I wouldn’t make friends. In such a large school, it is easy to feel lost and alone. I’ll never forget getting a flier for Bruin Belles on Bruin Walk, and making the last-minute decision to apply. Bruin Belles has been my family here at UCLA. It has been a blessing to work alongside women who are passionate, driven leaders. They inspire me to continually strive for social justice and equality. I see women to sacrifice their time and comfort in the service of others. The opportunity to grow and live alongside these amazing people has encouraged and strengthened me. As a senior, I can look back and confidently say that I have made some of my best friends through Bruin Belles, and have cultivated friendships I know will last a lifetime. To the girls who volunteer, dance, laugh, and cry with me: I love you to the moon and back, and thank you for shaping me into the person I am today.
