I just want to thank you, your staff, the sponsors, and the judges for such a wonderful event. I am humbled and honored by my inclusion in this group of phenomenal women, and I am very impressed with the turnout and organization of the awards ceremony. Well done! I can’t think of anything you could have done better.

Thank you again for including me in the inaugural class of The Daily Record’s Leading Women. You and your entire staff put on an incredible event and I was honored to be a part of it.

I would like to thank you again for choosing me as The Daily Record’s 2014 Leading Women scholarship winner. I was able to do so much with this scholarship. As I said in the interview, I was going to use the scholarship to attend the 2015 Youth Assembly at the United Nations. I was so fortunate to be a part of the 300 delegates who came from all around the world to attend this assembly. “The Youth Assembly at the United Nations is a unique platform created to foster dialogue and generate partnerships between exceptional youth, UN high officials and staff, private sector, and civil society.” From this experience I was able to maximize my potential and meet other leaders like me who would like to make a positive impact on this world. This experience has also helped me realize that I wanted to intern for the United Nations. Thus, leading me to apply for an internship this summer at the United Nations Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights in Guinea and I got accepted into the program. I am currently interning for this UN’s office in Guinea and none of it would have been possible without me receiving this scholarship and attending the Youth Assembly.

It was a pleasure meeting you at the Path to Excellence networking event last week. I was honored to be in the presence of so many wonderful women and to learn about the extraordinary work your organization is doing in the lives of others. My attendance resulted in me networking with professionals who can support me in the mission of my Outreach Center. I am looking forward to attending future activities. Thanks to you and your team for coordinating such a memorable event!

Thank you so very much for inviting my Professional Fellow, Semra Caglar, and me in the TDR Women reception earlier this week. It was a lovely event, so well attended by many very interesting people. There were wonderful opportunities for networking and the food was delicious. It will surely be one of the highlights of Semra’s visit to the U.S.
