How did you hear about the 2019 NeW Essay Contest and why did you choose to participate in it?
I was looking for scholarships online and happened across this one. As soon as I read the essay prompt, I knew I wanted to apply. I wasn’t expecting to win anything at all, I just wanted to write the essay because I was inspired.

Why is NeW important?
NeW is important because especially today, women need to have a space to discuss ideas and share their opinions. NeW lifts women up and inspires them to realize their full potential. It encourages relevant and important dialogue and creates a culture of mutual respect and understanding.
