Spotlight Member of October: Maria Mendoza
Our spotlight member of October is Maria Mendoza! Maria is a sophomore here at UIC and has shown interest in the Undergraduate Women’s Network since the start of the semester. Always seen as a friendly face at many of our events, various members took notice to Maria’s activeness in UWN. Maria is a kind, charismatic member who has made clear that she has a passion for supporting her fellow members. Take a look at what Maria has to say about UWN and being October’s Spotlight Member of the Month!
“I’m so honored to be chosen as the October member of the month! In such a short time of being a part of this group I have learned so much and made many great friendships. UWN has also been able to expose me to new learning opportunities. With many great events like the Allstate Recruiter panel, the evening with Suzanne Sprague, and Team Socials I have been able to network with new people and make connections with individuals I would’ve never thought I’d have the chance to speak with.
As a commuter student last year, it was very difficult to make friends. In such a big school it’s hard to find a small community feeling, but this is exactly what UWN was able to offer. As soon as I went to the first info meeting I knew this was the org for me. UWN gives you the opportunity to build friendships with motivated women just like you. I also love that this org takes part in philanthropy events, which is something that is very important to me. It feels like a family and I can’t wait for what the rest of the year will bring!I’m very excited about the Coffee and Conversation coming up this Wednesday! It’ll be nice to get a little break from classes to enjoy a cup of coffee and mingle with UWN members. I also love coffee!
I absolutely love what UWN is about! It’s such a great feeling to know you’re surrounded with a great group of women who want to empower one another and see each other succeed and become the successful women we thrive to be!”
We are so grateful to have dedicated members such as, Maria. It is her type of constant passion and efforts in supporting our mission, that drives us to present great opportunities like the Allstate recruiting panel and having prominent guest speakers like Suzanne Sprague for our members.
Keep up the great work, Maria!
