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.
Meet Samantha Dorning, Vice President of NeW at Boston University.
What were some of your favorite events that you participated in with NeW?
I had so much fun at Policy in the Park! We had a great discussion about the status of our country and how to better form sisterhood bonds.
What are your plans after graduation?
I will be attending Marquette Law School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I am very excited to begin my path to my professional career in which I feel I can really give back to my country and fellow citizens.
What advice would you give to a conservative woman starting college?
I would advise conservative women to always handle adversity with grace. Immediately find a community of like-minded people but also expand your circle to learn from other viewpoints. However, never lose your roots, and when faced with criticism, always be strong and graceful. Be kind, but do not be weak.
How has NeW impacted you and prepared you for your next steps?
I feel so much more empowered to defend my faith and my values as a student, professional, and daughter. To have a group of women with whom I can authentically be myself is such a gift and treasure, and I will try to always pay it forward to other women who are nervous to be themselves.
Why is NeW important to you?
NeW is my opportunity to reclaim my identity, which was ripped from me on my college campus. It has encouraged me to recognize the duty I have to my God, my family, and my country.
The Network of enlightened Women (NeW) provides premier opportunities for young conservative women like Samantha. Learn how to bring a Chapter of NeW to your campus today!
