My years at Wellesley College were very important in the formation of who I am today. In retrospect, I see those 4 years as not only academically important but as life goals planning. I gained a world of trust, empowerment,confidence and most importantly respect for the woman I would become and I am today. Reflecting back, Wellesley was a tool for my success. Yes, success in every sense of the word. The classroom setting, the openminded conversations, the educational culture, the wholeness of the campus and the premature exposure to a wide variety of experiences on issues that are so important in today's culture and society; gave me an incredible valuable tool to tackle the world in 1985 and beyond to today.
