The Terry Women’s Initiative gives me the assurance I need to go above and beyond expectations. I now have a clear understanding that my gender or age are not barriers to success. Achieving my goals takes perseverance, motivation and the ability to build relationships with people who are willing to guide me along the way.

The Terry Women’s Conference, in particular, was very inspirational as well as informative. I interacted with incredibly successful women who work in the field I am interested in, and I had the opportunity to ask for their honest career advice. I am so grateful that I was able to experience the Conference as a student.
