Advice to Freshman: DA: Find what you love and try different things out. It might not work out, and that’s okay as long as you are open to new experiences.  Don’t be afraid to switch things up if you find out you aren’t passionate about the activity or cause anymore. 

CM: This isn’t high school, you shouldn’t pad your resume; you should only participate in organizations you are passionate about. You don’t have to set the world aflame yourself.

All things WIB:

How has WIB changed throughout your time at Boston College?

When we joined Women in Business, the organization was primarily focused on professional preparation, networking, and recruitment opportunities. Additionally, WIB mostly partnered with accounting firms to develop and sponsor all events. As​ we came to serve as presidents, we both knew that we wanted Women in Business to appeal to a greater audience at Boston College. Thus, along with our Board of nine undergraduate women, we worked to rebrand the organization to empower our members through a diverse curriculum of events, as well as to reflect the mission of Boston College and educate the mind, body, and soul of undergraduate females. 

What is it like being Co-Presidents?

CM: We are lucky that our strengths complement one another, and we make sure to focus on this when delegating and organizing events. First and foremost, we are a team and rely on each other (even outside of WIB). Diana is friendly, outgoing, a strong communicator, and extraordinarily positive.

DA: Caela is truly a woman for others. She recognizes the potential of each girl who she surrounds herself with, and provides them with resources to be the best, well-informed versions of themselves. And personally, whether it's providing me with relevant, interesting articles to read, or being an attentive listener and friend and offering me honest advice, Caela inspires me to be the best, truest version of myself every single day.  I could not be more grateful to stand by her side as co-President of this organization.
