Empowering Woman Series: Her Campus President Liz Chapman

In light of International Women’s Day on March 8th, Her Campus Lasell found it necessary to highlight the woman that have impacted our lives or who we see making a difference for their community for this week (and every day).  In this Empowering Woman Series, we have chose to interview students, friends, family, and professors about what they do and what it’s like being bada** empowering woman. 

Passionate, caring, creative, and outgoing. These are the words I would use to describe Liz Chapman,  senior at Lasell College studying Fashion and Retail Merchandising and minoring in Business and Law. As the Her Campus Lasell President, she inspires the members of Her Campus and others on the Lasell campus with her confidence and leadership skills. She always keeps Her Campus members on task, but makes sure we always have fun in weekly meetings, bonding nights, and campus events. Before being the President, she put her hard work into being the Events Director. Her hard work does not stop there, as she also works in the Office of Student Activities on campus and is an intern at the Lasell Village. She is also an Ivory Ella ambassador, Student Government Association Senator, and was part of the Drama Club for two years.

When Chapman was asked to reflect back on why she became a member of Her Campus her Freshman year and she responded, “ I was told it was a way to bond with others. I was sort of a scared freshman and didn’t know a lot of people. I met some lovely ladies who took me under their wing.”

Since then, she has been inspired to put the most she can into this club to make it a great environment for others on campus.

When asked what her favorite part about Her Campus and what motivated her to be events director and then president she answered, “People are dedicated.  It’s different than other clubs. People want to come to meetings, it’s not a have to. I wanted it to grow and succeed.”

Ashley Graham is one of Chapman’s biggest inspirations because she was the first person in the media who she felt looked like her and genuinely expressed body positivity. 

On a more personal level she added, “ My sister Amy as well because she has a lot of perseverance and is successful because of it and she is inspired to be like her.”

Chapman said she is going to miss her friends, especially the people she has good relationships with, the most after leaving Lasell.  

Chapman’s confidence, hard work, and dedication to Her Campus is an inspiration to the others on the eboard and those that are also rising to eboard positions.  Hoping her lots of success after graduation!
