Meet Kenlee Foskey, Vice President of NeW at Mercer University.
How did you first hear about NeW?
I heard about NeW through a friend and we connected with other women interested in starting a chapter.
Why is having a NeW chapter on campus so important to you?
Having a NeW chapter is important to me because it gives conservative women on my campus a place to spend time with other like-minded individuals.
What has been your favorite memory or event with NeW?
My favorite memory is being able to help start my chapter on campus!
Why is NeW important?
NeW is important because it helps conservative women learn how to articulate their beliefs and grow professionally. NeW helps conservative women feel empowered in our beliefs and not shy away from them, despite how difficult it may be in our current society.
What advice would you give other conservative women on campus?
I would say to not be afraid to speak out about what you believe. I understand it can be difficult and even scary, but when you are firm in your beliefs, it opens the door for others who have the same beliefs to come forward. The way we make progress is to initiate healthy and productive conversation, so do not shy away from the opportunity to communicate your beliefs, even if those around you believe differently.
