When Hua Wang joined our Women’s Fellowship program she was in working to complete her law degree and looking for insights on what to do when she finished school…she found much more. It all started when the Impact Center paired her with, Sarah Wang, an attorney based in Chicago, where Hua was going to school. While being located in the same city allowed the two to meet face to face, it was the parallels in their lives that helped them form a close bond. Sarah had walked the path that Hua was on and could help her navigate her challenges.
Throughout the year Sarah helped Hua refine her purpose and remain focused on her passions so she didn’t get hung up on the different possibilities before her. Because they both work in the field of law, Sarah was able to help Hua connect with the right people in the right places to find the career path she wanted. Additionally, Sarah helped encourage Hua to find additional outlets for making an impact on our society.
Hua graduated from Northwestern this past May and will soon begin working at a Boston law firm. Since her fellowship she has become much more aware of women’s issues and the importance of leadership. She has even begun blogging on for sites such as the Glass Hammer. Hua on her fellowship, “I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of the fellowship, to be a part of this wonderful group of women. It is the reason I am where I am in my career today.”
