This spring, we at Her Campus set out to find 22 ambitious, talented, and big-thinking current college women to recognize as 2016’s 22 Under 22 Most Inspiring College Women. After receiving over 1,000 powerful nominations and culling through their uber-impressive applications, we could not be more in awe of the truly aspirational group at which we arrived.
These 22 honorees are influencers on their campus (and beyond) who demonstrate leadership, excel academically, are doing big things in an area that’s important to them, and who have ambitious goals for their future. From serving as an elected official, to founding international non-profits, to advocating for transgender rights, and so much more, you’ll be amazed these collegiettes have time to make it to class!
Read on for exclusive interviews with these 22 fabulous ladies—we promise you’ll be mega-inspired!
