Thank You, Her Campus

I will be graduating in just a few short weeks. While I'm super excited for this next step, I can't help but feel a little sad. I will miss the professors who have encouraged me and help me grow as a person. I will miss my roommate, who I have lived with since my first semester. I will miss the friends I have made, whether they be friends I saw in class or friends who I frequently hung out with. I will miss the events I enjoyed attending and the organizations I have involved myself with, including Her Campus.

I was here when Kutztown's chapter began. My friend and founder of our chapter, Carmelina Stolzenberg, was recruiting writers. I had read Her Campus articles from universities around the country before, and I was definitely interested. I attended the first meeting, and from there, I became a writer. 

While it hasn't been easy to write every week, it is something that I have enjoyed doing the past year and a half. Some weeks, I simply have no idea what to write about. Some weeks, life catches up with me and I completely forget to write an article. Most weeks, I look forward to writing. Writing for Her Campus has encouraged me to think about feminist issues that need more attention. It influenced me to add a Women's and Gender Studies Minor last minute (I began it at the end of this past spring). Most importantly, I was able to read the many fantastic articles written by my fellow peers. 

My peers have addressed issues I myself may not have known existed, or brought fresh perspectives to issues I had little knowledge about. I look forward to not only writing my own articles, but reading others as well. 

I encourage anyone to sign up as a Her Campus writer. it encourages one to think and betters one's writing skills. 

Thank you, Her Campus, for the past three semesters. I will miss you dearly.
