Jorge. Jasmine and Lin. Robbyosha. Cody. Dana. To some, these may just be names, but to the nine agencies funded by United Way of Southern Nevada’s Women’s Leadership Council (WLC), these are success stories. These are real people who started on the path to a better life through the community’s support and the efforts of a dedicated group of women committed to making a difference.

As a college student from humble means, I believe in the value of a quality education to transform a life. I’m a graduating senior at UNLV studying Business Economics, and I am interning here at UWSN with the Social Innovation team. I am impressed by the quality of the people and programs here, and I get to add to it in a meaningful way. I’m thrilled that I am now contributing to a project aimed at improving academic achievement among the most economically vulnerable in town.
