How have you benefited from the Gannon Scholars program?

In my single year as a Gannon Scholar, I have noticed exponential growth in myself regarding my work ethic, my ambition, and my optimism. The Gannon Scholars have provided me not only with many resources I wouldn't have had access to otherwise, but also with the support system and environment to feel as though success is achievable.

Why is the mission of women's leadership important to you?

The mission of the Gannon Scholars is important to me because it, simply put, encourages the advancement and empowerment of identities typically struggling to find a leg up in society. I find myself included in a handful of these groups, and the focus on women's leadership encourages me to take what I learn from this mission and use it to spread the outreach beyond Gannon's immediate audience. Such a genuine care and focused effort to improve lives seems few and far between lately, but necessary at all costs, which is what makes Gannon so important to me.
