Senior Spotlight: Krystal Hernandez

May 16, 2014 | Alyssa Condrey

Congratulations to our graduating seniors and thank you for your work with NeW! We are pleased to spotlight some of our outstanding chapter leaders and members. We will miss working with them on campus, but look forward to them joining our NeW Alumnae Network.

Today’s Spotlight is on Krystal Hernandez, NeW leader at University of Florida.

What is one thing you gained from NeW?

I’ve gained leadership skills, a better understanding of my own morals, and, most importantly, great friendships with like-minded women that I know will last beyond my college career.

What is one piece of advice you would pass on to NeW ladies following you?

Get involved as much as you can with, not only your local chapter, but also the national organization. Apply for an internship, go to the national conference, get involved with the leadership. You will garner very valuable experience, knowledge, and connections.

Why do you think others should be involved with NeW?

NeW is a gateway for fostering connections with like-minded individuals. For those who do not necessarily share the same morals and beliefs, it is an organization through which knowledge and information can be shared and increased. It’s an organization that can be of use for anyone and everyone.

Thanks Krystal!
