Club of the Week: Women Who Work
Updated: Nov 29, 2021
Success is not handed to you on a silver platter, rather it is earned through perseverance and hard work. Interested in learning about successful women who work? If your answer is yes, you should join this week's club of the week: Women Who Work! Through the monthly meetings, students hear from doctors, lawyers, magazine editors, and plenty more women from different careers; they have the opportunity to ask as many questions as they’d like! After all, what better way to learn more about a career than ask someone who does it for a living?! As the club’s founder and co-president, along with Senior Claudia Tawil, our goal is to display opportunities for female students and highlight the power of women in the work field. We hope to encourage young ladies to make their dreams a reality. This club is especially important for high school students as most are attempting to discover their passion and get a better idea of what they would like to pursue in their future. Hearing from the guest speakers will help them narrow down their list of future careers and find out what it is they truly love. Last year, for example, we were lucky enough to have Daniella Muller as our guest speaker. Daniella Muller is not only the President of our school's board, but she is also a practicing lawyer. She spoke about what inspired her to be a lawyer, the process she endured to receive her law degree, what she does as a lawyer, and how she manages to make time for her family with her busy schedule. It was very motivating for students to hear her speak. It is powerful women like Danielle that inspire the future female leaders of our society.
