10 Things Past Scholarship Winners Have Learned from GlamourGals
With the GlamourGals Leadership Scholarship Award due date right around the corner we wanted to share with you how GlamourGals has shaped the views of past scholarship winners.
GG taught me how important it is to give back to the community. You don’t realize how much the elderly have done to shape the society we live in today. - Kirsten Mullins, graduate of Ohio State University
Through GlamourGals, I came to realize the importance of working with the elderly because it is an undervalued and often ignored part of our society. - Evan Milican, currently attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
I learned that it is important to make connections with people in all walks of life. Spending time with the elderly and often impaired people I met during my years in Glamour Gals helped me to be compassionate towards everyone. - Pamela Smoller, currently attending Stony Brook University
I learned leadership skills and that when I have an idea and I want to make it happen, with a little hard work I can. - Sarah Sandler, currently attending Clemson University
I learned that everyone really has a story to tell and there is always a way to connect to people regardless of who you are talking to. - Suin Jung, currently attending Cornell University
The most important thing I learned from volunteering with GlamourGals is how to be part of my community. - Shiwanghni Manisha, currently attending Berkeley College
The most important things I have learned from GlamourGals is how to be compassionate and patient. - Nicholas Sookhoo, currently attending Drexel University
The most important things I've learned from GG are how important it is to devote time to others, how to get people excited to volunteer, and that leadership is sometimes hard but always rewarding. - Juliet Yeomans, currently attending Stevens Institute of Technology
I learned how to manage time, be a strong and effective leader, and the fulfillment of giving back to the community. Through GG, I discovered a passion for working with seniors, and that is what I want to do as a career. - Marialaina Nissenbaum, currently attending Fairleigh Dickinson University
I have learned many things but the most important one would have to be the fact that it’s not about the manicures and it’s not about the makeup. Those things do help make the women feel better about themselves but what makes them feel even better is our company. There are a lot of women that I have visited at the nursing home who were lonely and don’t get visitors. For me, seeing how much they get cheered up when I sit and what with them was truly the best part of the experience. This idea is actually my main inspiration for my essay in which I was generously chosen for the volunteer award for in 2013. - Sherouk M. Youssef, currently attending Rutgers University
