At Wellesley, learning to read analytically, write papers, and do research provided a strong foundation for my career and personal life. My work with the Alumnae Association has provided opportunities to improve my skills in writing, desktop publishing, managing websites, and public speaking. Throughout my life it seems every encounter with the College or other alumnae sparks my curiosity to learn new things and inspires me to keep improving myself. Most of all, my Wellesley friendships have been fun, supportive, and broadened my life experience.
