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 Talia Girvin, president of NeW at the University of South Florida.
What were some of your favorite events that you participated in with NeW?
CPAC 2022 was incredibly exciting and informational! I loved seeing all the other NeW members from across the country. Our Back-to-School Social was a great way to recruit new members and see returning members.
What are your plans after graduation?
I have been accepted to, and will be attending, the Master’s Level Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling Program at the University of South Florida. My goals include graduating and becoming a licensed mental health counselor.
What advice would you give to a conservative woman starting college?
At times you might feel alone, but believe that there are other college women with your same beliefs. Be confident, and even if you loose a friend here and there, you will be happier that you can be your true, authentic self.
How has NeW impacted you and prepared you for your next steps?
NeW has changed my life in so many ways, specifically personally and professionally. Stepping out and speaking up about politics in my junior year forced me to gain confidence that I could then take with me to senior year as president of NeW at USF. I have learned professional tips on everything from resumes and headshots to what to wear to and how to act at a professional event. I now carry this confidence and professionalism into anything I do. Thank you, NeW!
Why is NeW important to you?
NeW is so important because it gives women a place to find like-minded friends and grow in their political beliefs. Women need to be involved in politics to be another voice for conservatism.
The Network of enlightened Women (NeW) provides premier opportunities for young conservative women like Talia. Learn how to bring a Chapter of NeW to your campus today!
