Over the past months, adjusting to the “new normal” has allowed us to witness the power of our own resilience. That is especially true for the women of WWIN, who have modeled strength and courage through the many challenges of the pandemic, with WWIN’s help.
WWIN inspires women to see what’s possible, develop the confidence to pursue their goals, and transform their lives and their families’ lives for generations to come.
Through the uncertainty of a pandemic, we remain committed to supporting women to achieve economic stability through higher education and a living wage career. But we can’t do this important work without your help.
Please join us and our host Mimi Jung of KING-5 News throughout the month for our Inspiring Women campaign as we celebrate resilience. Throughout this month, you’ll hear firsthand from WWIN Star Scholars as they speak about their experiences in the face of adversity. If you’d like to receive emails sharing these inspiring stories, please sign up here.
The emotional support motivated me to continue pushing forward when I felt lost and hopeless, especially when COVID-19 caused such a drastic shift in the world.”
– Star Scholar, Hannah

Star Scholar: Jen
When Jen became pregnant and left school, she was uncertain how she would ever return. With WWIN’s help she did—and today she is a nurse with a job she loves and a desire to encourage other women to go for their dreams and never give up. She’s also grateful for the opportunity to be a role model for her daughter. Of course, she would not be living the life she is now without your support. You helped her gain confidence in her abilities and create a better future for her and her daughter.
Star Scholar: Rasha
If you looked up the definition of “resilience” in the dictionary, there’s a good chance it might say, “Rasha.” An Iraqi immigrant, Rasha came to America as a young teenager, with little knowledge of English and little motivation for school. Today, however, Rasha is on her way to becoming a pilot. Between working the graveyard shift, taking classes and flying test flights, Rasha has little time for sleep, but it doesn’t deter her. Neither does the fact that only seven percent of pilots worldwide are women. In fact, in spite of these obstacles, she moves forward to achieve her goals.
Help us send 200 more women to college this year by becoming a fundraiser for WWIN!
