"I joined EWHC as a student because I was looking for strong women who could help guide and mentor me as a student and a professional. With the help EWHC, I was able to find my voice and confidence as a professional woman. Seeing all the amazing things the members of EWHC have accomplished in life, professionally and personally, inspires me to continually strive to become a better professional and individual."
