The place where I called — “Second home”
A leadership dormitory in empowering young women leaders, it’s not just a place to stay, but an institution to learn and grow
The places in which we spend our time, share our interests have played a part in shaping who we are. I lived in a dormitory life where I have increased my field of interest in supporting young women and empowering women leaders to pursue higher education, lifting them from discrimination against gender.
“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. It shouldn’t be that women are the exception” — Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Throughout my experiences, and living in a sisterhood community that coming from diverse backgrounds. Our story has shaped our community through physical changes and social activities, including joining community services, leadership conferences, cultural activities with residents coming from abroad, and various participation through Harpswell Core Curriculum.
While people’s relationship to place is in many ways, it’s also very much emotional and deep attachment. I have always felt excited when I go back and visit my dormitory. The relationships of our sisterhood community create the strength of social networks through the alumnae association. That place become the tangible landscape of memory, the place that made me feel loved, supported, and these experiences through thick and thin shape who I am today.
