Last Year’s Winners
The winners of the 2018 #WoRonTheGlassCeiling scholarship were Ana Little-Saña from George Washington University and Emily Gorey from the University of Maryland. These ladies wowed us with inspiring projects intertwined with just enough badass energy. We quickly picked up our pompoms to cheer them on as they took their first steps towards making their campuses – and the world – a better place.
Ana blew us away with her mega impressive presentation on Imposter Syndrome and its not-so-great relationship with the women at George Washington University. She expertly pinpointed areas of anxiety, doubt, and turmoil at her school, letting us know: this issue runs deep. Ana’s proposal combined the powers of collegiate organizations into an Avengers-level tag team. She showcased her ability to navigate new territory and extract meaningful results – all while supporting her ideas with a foundation of thoughtful research. All-in-all, we saw Ana’s drive for results that reached beyond campus.
At the end of Emily’s adorable, yet powerful, video on women’s voices, we were chanting “Have your say!” through the halls of RedPeg. Artfully demonstrating the underrepresentation of women on a larger scope as well as on a personal level at her own university, Emily compelled us through numbers, flawless narration, and comforting pastels. Having aesthetically pleasing visuals to drive home today’s issues in gender inequality didn’t hurt either. In fact, it helped Emily take the cake – or, uh, check in this case.
